Nadezda Leonidovna Shakhbazyan

Chair of the ICSD Women in Sports Commission

I have higher education in the financial and functional sphere.

I have been involved in Deaf Sports for 23 years. Since 2014 I occupy position of the Head of Deaflympics in Russia in the Russian Committee of Deaf Sports. My work as a leader of the Russian Deaf Sport movement gave me comprehensive experience, strong motivation and enthusiasm.

I am deeply interested for work of the ICSD Women in Sports Commission, since for me it seems to be extremely important to extend women influence in the field of Deaf Sports. I have a strong intend to do something really important and contribute into strengthening the role of women on the international level. I hope that I will be able to bring in my professional and personal experience to be helpful in this role, develop international ties and facilitate the advancement of women.
