Wimbledon changing of the guard a chance to speed up diversity drive

Post by Floyd »

Sally Bolton, the All England Club’s first female CEO, along with its new chairman, have real opportunity to make game more accessible to everyoneSally Bolton is one of a small but growing number of influential women at the highest levels of international tennis, and the incoming chief executive of the All England Club knows she has a duty to listen to voices from other marginalised groups who have been ignored for too long.“I absolutely appreciate that my gender is a story,” says Bolton, the first woman to be chief executive at Wimbledon. “I do hope that I’ll be judged on what I achieve. I also appreciate that it’s important for women and girls to be able to see it’s possible to achieve senior roles in sport. And I’m very supportive of diversity in the boardroom, and in sport generally. So it’s exciting times.” Related: [url=https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2020/ ... ton-tennis]New Wimbledon chief follows path of pioneer Norah Gordon Cleather[/url]
