Stephanie Hilborne OBE

Since joining Women in Sport in 2019 Steph has renewed the charity’s strategy based on its proud 40 year history and has developed the charity around its existing strengths in insights and research. As CEO she has been making sure the charity is tackling major policy issues, growing its influence in government and its partnerships in sport, whilst diversifying its people and its funding base.  Before Women in Sport, Steph was CEO of a major environment movement and campaigned on climate change and nature’s recovery. She is experienced in achieving legislative change and is a strong advocate for the outdoors, active living and team sport. She is passionate about freeing up the lives of women and girls in all their diversity to experience the joy of sport.  She believes it is wrong that so many women and girls are missing out on the wellbeing, resilience and leadership skills sport can instil.
