'Embrace the skill and talent of our young women' - JN exec bats for gender empowerment in sport

Sharon Smith, senior manager, Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS), says it is time for Jamaica to use sports as a tool for economic and gender empowerment.

Smith was celebrating with the Sunshine Girls, following their 2-1 victory over England in the Vitality International Test Series in England earlier this month, at an event organised by Netball Jamaica on the campus of The University of the West Indies last Thursday.

She said that the Sunshine Girls’ victory brought home the need for greater investment and development of sports such as netball in which Jamaica has a competitive advantage at the international level.
