"This is not your ordinary conference where you remain passive recipients," the POC Women in Sport Commission said.

"Here, you are an active agent for change towards your vision for yourself, your sport, and the larger Philippines sports community. 

"You will be engaged in a three-day conference that aims for participants to propose projects to address leadership challenges for women in sports. 

"You will undergo a design thinking workshop, run by expert consultants, that will serve as a guiding framework for your project design."
