About the event
In this webinar, we'll discuss the lastest findings from the “European Women in Sport (E-WinS) Project looking at the perceptions of football players, coaches and managers on pay, sponsorship, media coverage, and female specific topics, such as the menstrual cycle, pregnancy and childcare etc.
Join us for this FREE hour-long group session and learn more about how important it is to have women involved in club’s governance, in coaching and training and as professional or amateur athletes, and how important it is to understand and adapt the decision making in sport to women’s characteristics.
This study was part of a larger project entitled E-WinS, funded by ERASMUS+ of the European Commission. E-WinS aims to promote and accelerate the feminization of Sport in European cultures through developing awareness and understanding on the specific problematics women encounter in their sport careers. It means to bring more visibility to women athletes in Europe and to help improve their role and impact in sport governance.
