Special Olympics South Africa was honored when our CEO, Ancilla Smith, was invited to talk at the recent government Youth Expo. The Expo was aimed at introducing school going youth to the opportunities for employment in different fields, Ancilla was invited to speak on "Women in Sport" by the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture.
The dialogue’s main objective is to look into the underlying factors causing the difficulty in the progression of women in sport. Ancilla also focused on the issues for women in disability sport.
Ancilla said " It was a privilege to share the stage with so many inspiring women, who have achieved so much in the sporting world and it was also a reminder about how important it is for us to encourage women in disability sport."
