Lisa West

Head of Policy, Partnerships and Public Affairs

Lisa joined Women in Sport in August 2021 as Partnerships and Consultancy Manager, creating meaningful and lasting partnerships across the sport sector, and beyond, to further our mission.

Alongside our partnerships, she now leads the organisation’s advocacy work as well, as we continue to increase our impact, break down barriers and empower more women and girls to be active.

Lisa brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience from 15 years working in the sport sector. She started within Local Authority sport development before moving to Swim England and more recently spent 8 years working as a Project Manager and Consultant. Lisa plays and umpires netball as well as taking part in mass participation triathlon events and believes whole heartedly in the power that sport and physical activity has to improve lives.

Favourite sporting moment? Still (and probably always!) being a Games Maker at the Aquatics Centre at London 2012.
