The IOC is committed to developing programmes and initiatives to ensure that every athlete can train and compete in a safe sporting environment – one that is fair, equitable and free from all forms of harassment and abuse.

Building on that commitment, the IOC, in coordination with Sports Rights Solutions and with the support of the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) and the Association of International Olympic Winter Federations (AIOWF), developed the IOC Athlete Safeguarding Webinar Series for International Federations.

This series, consisting of 10 two-hour webinars, was open to all International Federations of sports on the Summer and Winter Olympic programmes, and was presented between September and November 2019. Each session, led by some of the world’s leading experts in the field of child protection and athlete safeguarding, focuses on the common challenges faced by sports organisations looking to build policy and implement athlete safeguarding measures.

Below you will find links to each webinar in the series. Each session lasts approximately two hours.
