GAP WOMEN is an Erasmus+ project aiming to increase the participation of women in sport. As a partner of the project, ENGSO Secretary General Sara Massini and ENGSO Policy Director Elisabeth Strobach participated in the project’s kick off meeting which took place in Barcelona, Spain, on 27-28 July 2022.
GAP WOMEN is led by ENGSO associated member Unió de Federacions Esportives de Catalunya (UFEC) with an objective to support federations and sport clubs with developing efficient strategies to increase the representation of women within their organisations, and fill the gap that exists between men and women when it comes to membership and participation.
Within the scope of this project, ENGSO will be in charge of the campaign and the local and national events which will be organised during the International Women’s Day (8 March) and the European Week of Sport (23-30 September). Events will be organised in all the project partners’ countries. ENGSO will create the promotional campaign for those events and coordinate the content which will be implemented by other project partners.
