Since the creation of the Women in Sport policy, the IOC has organised regional seminars and workshops throughout the five continents. These seminars aim to give greater visibility to women and sport issues and to encourage the NOCs, Continental Associations, International and National Federations to step up their work in this area.
The seminars and workshops have four objectives:
|1.||Advocacy||Contribute to raising awareness about the various issues related to women’s participation in sport;|
|2.||Information-sharing and evaluation of progress||Provide participants with up-to-date information and statistics to evaluate progress made by the Olympic Movement in gender equity;|
|3.||Networking||Provide participants with a platform for contacts, share ideas and experiences and educate each other; and|
|4.||Development of action plans||Assist participants in identifying and implementing key actions and strategies for their particular organisation.|
