Please join us to hear from leaders who will share experiences of sport as a transformative tool and to issue a call to Member States and partners to join this collective effort of Sport for Generation Equality. Leaders will share their commitment to promoting sport for the achievement of gender equality and will present their experiences and recommendations according to the six principles included in the Sport for Generation Equality Framework. We will also explore how governments and members of the sport ecosystem can advance gender equality in and through sports, including as the sport industry and societies are experiencing the challenges posed by COVID-19.
