Posted: Tue, 25 Jul 2017 08:38
When discussing gender equality in sport, coaching is always one of the key issues, as statistics show an underrepresentation of women coaches in many disciplines, especially at the highest levels.
The European Commission commissioned this particular study to evaluate existing (formal and non-formal) training and education schemes for coaches in view of their gender equality elements, to evaluate their modules on gender equality and to identify good practices with regards to accessibility for women. This mapping followed specific Expert Group on Good Governance recommendations on Gender Equality in Sport and was very timely in the context of the Estonian Presidency's focus on the role of coaches in society.
