Sport is the biggest social movement in Europe, with some 300 million Europeans regularly enjoying sport. However, sport in Europe does not offer a level playing field, with reports in some countries that more than 80% of women do too little sport or exercise to benefit their health.
These figures are perhaps unsurprising given that sport lacks women leadership. It is estimated that boards in even some of Europe’s more progressive countries are made up of less than 20% women, meaning strategies created for developing sport can have a significant bias.
For this reason ENGSO has developed its Women’s International Leadership Programme. The aims of the programme is to up-skill potential women leaders from our partner countries across Europe and leave a legacy of tools and information available for future projects to get a head start.
