Researcher Angelica Saenz was in Berlin, Germany, from 12-13 August 2023 to attend Discvoer Football Symposium and meet with athletes, coaches, referees, journalists and young leaders to gather more data and answers for the ongoing EWS survey.
Discover Football gives women worldwide a space to exchange ideas and encourage them to continue to be active and a role model in women’s football context. And this Symposium was a successful event focused on in/visibility of women and queers in sports and in football / soccer in particular.

The EWS committee of ENGSO researches the status of equality within sport by acquiring knowledge on the LGBTQI+ community in Europe. This year, the focus is on intersectionality, with a specific attention given to women in sports.
The results will serve as a basis for further education, awareness raising and change campaigns in European grassroots sport to promote visibility, equality, and inclusion in sport.
The phase for data collection will remain open until the end of August. ENGSO encourages all members and partners to disseminate this questionnaire to women athletes, coaches, sport coordinators, board members, and referees.
The participation takes up to around 6 minutes. We ensure that data processing will not allow any identification of individuals and secures anonymity of data. Lesbian, bisexual, trans, intersex, heterosexual, queer, demigender, and anyone who self-defines as a woman, is welcome to respond.
