Lauren Jacobs - She Speaks Sports

Hi friends, I’m Lauren, founder of She Speaks Sport. Having worked on global issues as a journalist for over 14 years, I always held the vision for a world where women’s voices and stories could be heard, and understood. Having heard countless stories of women who have survived intense injustice, I found myself a conduit for telling those stories. For my journalism, advocacy, and faith work I have won 10 global awards and spoken on many stages including the Ted stage. As a sport lover, and an advocate for women’s sport, I moved into the sport space with the same mission and vision. To tell sportswomen’s stories, but with their own voices. That was how this media brand was formed and is thriving with this purpose and mission at the helm.

Female creators and journalists in the sport space are rare, so I am grateful to be connecting with athletes, coaches and community. I host the podcast which is at the heart of this brand and I love creating content for women’s sport teams. As a radio presenter, passionate about the airwaves, I do domestic cricket commentary and was blessed to be a commentator at the IMC Over – 40’s cricket world cup in 2024. I catch up on sport first thing in the morning, I spend weekends watching sport and I pray that women’s sport will be the movement to create change for every little girl who dreams of a career in sport. I’ve also been known to dabble in sport media management, so welcome and feel at home in this stadium of women’s sport.
