Founded by Australia’s longest serving Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick AO, the mission of the Champions of Change Coalition is to engage leaders to help achieve gender equality and a significant and sustainable increase in the representation of women in leadership.
In May, the Coalition released a series of reports on preventing and responding to sexual harassment in workplaces. This month they released their Pathway to Gender Equality in Sport: Progress Report 2019-2020 which tracks improvement and provides transparency on Group-wide and organisation performance on gender equality across 26 measures under the five categories of: leadership, participation, pathways, investment and practical actions.
“Sport has unparalleled influence to shift cultures and mindsets across the world. Our Coalition members have stepped up and committed to transparent annual reporting and review, so we can accelerate the pace of change and move our organisations towards equality – for the benefit of all women athletes, coaches, leaders, participants and fans.” Elizabeth Broderick AO
All very relevant during the Olympic Games.
