Women in Sport – Next Generation “Our vision is a world where women and men have equal opportunities… The message is clear: Gender discrimination has no place!
Women in Sport “The Next Generation” want the number of women leading and influencing in sport to grow, and to develop solutions to the cultural barriers which currently exist globally. Sport is one of the most powerful platforms for promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls.
EIS team has an important responsibility to take action when it comes to gender equality – a basic human right of profound importance. Great progress has been made in promoting gender equality in terms of balancing the total number of sporting athletes participating in sport, offering leadership development, advocacy and awareness campaigns, and more recently appointing more women to leadership roles within the administration and governance. Many stakeholders have also implemented significant gender equality initiatives so that girls and women around the world are being given greater access and the opportunity to participate in sport. However, there are still many challenges to be addressed.
