Women in Sport (registered charity number 1060267) exists so that every woman and girl in the UK can experience the transformational lifelong rewards of sport.
To achieve this, the charity informs through research into women and girls and their relationship with sport and physical activity, innovates by partnering with sport deliverers, and inspires using insight and expertise to bring about changes in policy, practice and attitudes.
Throughout 2016 and 2017, Women in Sport reached 10.6million people through its Women’s Sport Week Campaign in the UK. Since 2004, Women in Sport has collected and published data on the gender make-up of the boards and executive teams of publicly-funded sports organisations and campaigned for gender diversity at senior levels in sport.
In November 2016, the charity secured a commitment from the UK government that all publicly-funded governing bodies of sport must have a minimum of 30% women on their board
Women in Sport works with more than 100 sports organisations every year, providing workshops, guidance and training to help them improve their sports provision and workplace practices to create better opportunities for women and girls to take part in sport. As a result, tens of thousands of women and girls benefit from being able to access sport and physical activity programmes that are tailored to their needs.
