Let us introduce you to Marianna Sikorowska

Marianna, originally from Poland, graduated in law and focussed her studies on the phenomenon of doping in sport. Since moving to the UK four years ago, Marianna has been advisor on sports governance. She is currently working at London Marathon Charitable Trust. In particular she is passionate about gender equality in sport and has actively contributed to projects and working groups. She hopes for further opportunities to develop organisational structures to  break down the barriers to sport participation for girls and women.

Marianna was surrounded by women decision makers and was also raised by parents who loved their work and so she  has already been programmed to spend her time and life on what she is passionate about. Marianna knows she wants to influence change directly. Therefore she is determined to place herself where she can be empowered to lead change and lead others to achieve their potential.

Marianna Sikorowska is quick to learn as well as build new partnerships, she already has the leadership qualities that will drive positive change in the sports world – in whichever country that may be.

Marianna hopes to progress her sporting career and develop skills in leadership and decision- making through the SWinG programme. Ultimately, she wants further develop governance structures to improve gender equality.


For SWinG, Marianna is being mentored by Emmanuelle Boulangey, France.
