GSM Live: Now & Then - How Sport Has Transformed

Why this matters

From a pause in play, to a push for more progressive racial justice, to unanswered questions about the long-lasting impacts of COVID-19 that still linger in the air - what do we wish we knew then, that we know now?

On the next GSM Live, guests return one year later from all around the world to talk about how they and sport have transformed over the last year.

Global Sport Matters Live will be held on Friday, April 16th at 11:00 a.m. (Pacific) / 2:00 p.m. (Eastern); RSVP below.

For many, it’s been approximately a year in the life of a pandemic. We’ve seen tragedy, resilience, growing gaps of opportunity and opportunities for growth, juxtaposed in communities across the globe. The world of sport was not immune.
