Gender Bias in Sport & Physical Activity

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 Webinar

Birmingham 2022 was the first ever major multi-sport event to award more medals to women than men. 49% of athletes attending the Olympics in Tokyo were women and 40.5% of athletes attending the Paralympics were women.

Whilst this is good news, there is still such a long way to go across the whole spectrum of Sport and Physical Activity, especially when we consider intersectionality.

This webinar will look at gender bias in sport and how that intersects with other characteristics. We will also explore underrepresentation of women in different areas of sport from workforce to participation.

This webinar is hosted by Alex Alexander, a Senior I&D Consultant at Inclusive Employers.

Alex has 10 years’ experience in I&D and has extensive experience in inclusion in sport, working with 48 National Governing bodies in England and other organisations across the sector. Alex has written, designed, and delivered cultural change strategies and programmes and challenged the status quo to create more inclusive environments.
