The Paralympic Movement supports women in practice

Representatives from across the Paralympic Movement have gathered in Bonn, Germany, on 12-13 February, to celebrate the success of the International Paralympic Committee’s innovative WoMentoring project. The project was established to help contribute towards the Movement’s goal of having 30 per cent of women in leadership positions. Delivered by the IPC’s development arm, the Agitos Foundation, it has involved 16 pairs of mentors and mentees in an 18-month long programme of education and development.

The wrap-up event in Bonn featured testimonials from mentors and mentees on how WoMentoring has helped them to develop in their career, including gaining promotions and various positions of influence within National Paralympic Committees and para-sport organisations.
