Meg Watters

Insight Manager

Meg joined Women in Sport in October 2023 as an Insight Manager, leading and assisting with the charity’s ground-breaking research to deeply understand and reframe the environment and culture surrounding women and girls in sport.

Her experience of working in victim-led and children’s Services initiated her passion and drive to action change and empower women and girls in all areas and stages of life. Formerly working as a researcher and analyst within the Ministry of Defence, Meg has experience of planning, managing, conducting, and reporting large scale quantitative and qualitative research projects into policy and people related strategies. Her work within the Civil Service included the modernisation of the RAF, which aimed create a more fair and inclusive environment for Service personnel and their families.

Recently completing her postgraduate studies in Evolutionary and Cross-Cultural Psychology at Brunel University London, Meg has demonstrated and advocated for the importance of fine tuning how gender and intersectionality are researched to better understand the differences of women and girls from all walks of life.

Meg believes that this gendered and cross-cultural lens has resulted in more valid and representative insights into the different barriers women and girls face both personally and socially. Meg believes whole heartedly that no two people are the same and by taking a holistic approach to research and improving the way research is led, we can improve lives of all women and girls.
