Emma Lax, Founder and Managing Director of We Are Disrupt, says: ‘As an agency, we are committed to supporting rights holders and brands and helping them think differently about women’s sport. Whether that's rethinking commercial models, creating distribution strategies to target new audiences, or developing marketing and activation strategies that have a better understanding of how women and girls relate to sport.’
'Our ambition is to create a culture where women see their contribution to sport as having equal value to that of men, where increased investment drives higher standards of competition, improved experience and increased media coverage, which in turn will result in the normalisation of women in sport.'
