Gender Equality: Is gender equality in sport a new development in the sport policies of cities?

Live on Wednesday, October 28th from 18:00 – 19:00 CET

The COVID-19 crisis has the potential to foster a paradigm shift in women’s sport. While some believe that women’s participation in sport will decline due to a potential drop in private financial support, others believe the opposite is true, as the crisis could lead to a shift in more equal investment in sport.
What are the possible levers for action to ensure that women’s sport becomes part of the solution to the current crisis? Is gender equality in sport a new development in the sport policies of cities?
Confirmed speakers include:

Sally Kneeshaw
URBACT Programme Expert
Gender Equal Cities Lead

Annette Knott
Secretary General
Trinidad & Tobago Olympic Committee
