About S.W.E.E.P. International Conference, March 24 to 26, 2021

For many years, women and girls have been part of the vulnerable sector in society due to lack of access, funds, and opportunities. Their experience in the field of sports is no less different – even as studies have continually proven that women and girls who engage in sports have higher levels of confidence, perform better academically, and develop positive overall well-being and outlook in life.

The event is co-presented by the University of Tenessee’s Center for Sport, Peace, and Society, which has worked with international sports leaders and mentors to develop action plans towards sport inclusion for women and persons with disabilities, together with the immense support of ESPN’s The Stuart Scott ENSPIRE Award.

SWEEP is also made possible through its partnership with the U.S. Department of State Sports Diplomacy, espnW, and the Global Sports Mentoring Program.

What's In Store?

Day 1 (Wednesday, March 24, 2021)



Sports bring people together. Communities who engage in sports are most likely to develop strong social bonds and create a safer and more peaceful environment. Sport leaders and professionals will discuss the importance of sport in community relationship building, and initiatives to implement.

March 24, 2021 SWEEP AM Session
March 24, 2021 SWEEP PM Session

Sports and Fitness in the Digital Space


Making sure athletes stay in shape amid the coronavirus pandemic’s “new normal,” is no easy task. Here, teachers will share the evolving practices and methods in online and modular learning in physical education and sports. This track will also showcase digital variants of sport training, sport competition and safety protocols in its preparation.

Day 2 (Thursday, March 25, 2021)

Strategy and Policy Application for Women in Sports


Improving women sport participation requires the coordinated action of various agencies, whose guidelines must be based on research and strategic approach. In this program track, we invite a distinguished panel of authorities from the IOC, international women groups and governments to educate us in the area of policy formulation, application, and in evaluating gaps and impacts.
