Gender Equality

In recent decades, gender quality has become a central theme in our daily lives. A strong movement developed to improve women's lives and work in many parts of the world. Of course, CSIT also supports this movement and tries to counteract the problem of gender inequality with the help of sports.

Below we provide several links and documents that can help promote Gender Equality. All of the follwing pictures function as links.

IOC Gender Equality Review Project & Framework

The IOC Executive Board launched the IOC Gender Equality Review Project already in 2017 with a mandate to push gender equality globally with action-oriented recommendations for change. In its main part, the document gives 25 recommendations in the themes "Sport", "Portrayal", "Funding", "Governance" and "HR, Monitoring & Communications".

Through the Framework on Fairness, Inclusion and Non-discrimination on the basis of gender identity and sex variations the IOC seeks to promote a safe and welcoming environment for everyone involved in elite-level competition, consistent with the principles enshrined in the Olympic Charter. The Framework also acknowledges the central role that eligibility criteria play in ensuring fairness, particularly in high-level organised sport in the women’s category.
