The International Working Group (IWG) on Women & Sport is the world’s largest network dedicated to advancing gender equity and equality in sport, physical education and physical activity. It is fully aligned to the 17x United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Established in 1994, the IWG advocates and runs programmes globally year-round. It developed and remains guardian of the Brighton plus Helsinki 2014 Declaration, which now has the commitment of nearly 600 signatories worldwide. In September 2021, it launched a world first Insight Hub – an interactive collection of research, case studies, toolkits and news contributed from all over the world. In late 2022, the IWG launched the most recent IWG Progress Report.
Every four years the IWG stages the IWG World Conference on Women & Sport, the largest gathering of its kind in the world. The most recent event was staged in Aotearoa New Zealand and Online in November 2022. More than 1,850+ global sports leaders from over 300 organisations in 90 countries attended.
It is a not-for-profit with funding from a mix of Grants & Trusts, Donations, Fundraising & Gifts and Commercial Partnerships. You can help too by visiting Support Us.
