BLACK IN SPORT SUMMIT 2022
Sat 26th March | 10am - 5:30pm
WHAT IS BISS?
The Black in Sport Summit (BISS) was started by a group of Loughborough University students who joined forces after watching the horrific reaction towards black English footballers at the Euro 2020 final. We created BISS to change the narrative.
Taking place at the number 1 university in the world for sport, BISS will consist of panels talks, Q&A's, interviews and networking with some of the most inspirational people in sport. Join us on March 26th to make history.
