Gender Equality through Sport

The United Nations in Geneva and International Gender Champions host a workshop today in preparation for a Women in Sport Celebration. Anne Fuynel, Director of Marketing and Communications will represent the IFSC and join delegates from other sports organizations in contributing ideas and experience towards the event and towards development strategies.

Along with many other sports organizations, the IFSC has expressed its commitment to the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development. One of the key goals of this Agenda is Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment. Working towards this aim, there will be a workshop focusing on this topic in the scope of the 2017 IFSC Plenary Assembly.

The IFSC is proud of an unusually high percentage of female athletes and female representation on the Executive Board and in the staff. It strives to empower women both in competition and within the organization.
