Muslim Women In Sport Powerlist
Image is not available

The Muslim Women in Sport Powerlist honors only the very highest levels of achievement from the international female Muslim community in sport. It positively promotes the outstanding contributions made by these women on a local, national and international level. With every edition of this Powerlist we avidly search for the most influential, deserving and inspiring talent, and we encourage you to kindly nominate potential Powerlist members. The position and influence of Muslim women in sport on the global stage has never been greater or more important and you could influence the recognition of these women and help shine a positive light on their achievements. Nominees for the Powerlist are Muslim women working in sport, voluntarily or in a paid capacity. The criteria we use when judging for the list is our definition of influence: the ability to affect positive change in the lives of others directly and indirectly through their own actions and words, as demonstrated over an extended period of time, and particularly during the year being assessed.

The final Power List is chosen by a panel of experts from across the world after assessment of the nominations received and is launched in January of each year.
