Currently women are under-represented in senior leadership roles and on Boards in the sector. In England, just under half of the National Governing Bodies of sport fail to achieve the Governance requirement of ‘at least 30% women on the Board’. There is also evidence of discrimination and negative workplace culture. 40% of women in the sports industry say that they face discrimination because of their sex however 72% of their male colleagues say they see no inequality. This needs to change in order to create an environment in which both women and men thrive and to nurture the pipeline of talented female leaders for the future.
