Listen on

Episode notes

Radha Balani is a much-respected industry professional who's having a huge impact in the sport for development arena.

Radha started her career in the university sports sector before working for leading organisations in sport, including the Football Foundation, Women in Sport, London Sport, and now as co-Managing Director of Think Beyond.

It’s a fascinating conversation as we explore the world of Sport for Development and how sport can be used intentionally to transform the lives of women and girls. 

We explore Radha’s diverse career in sports leadership, and how organisations like BUCS, the Football Foundation and Women in Sport are driving change for grassroots participation. 

Radha highlights the growing trend for athletes to use their profile to drive social change whilst still competing and we also touch on the need to recognise the mental health issues facing many elite athletes today.  

Thanks to Sport England who support The Game Changers through the National Lottery.
