IOC President recommends women's participation in decision-making positions

International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach has written to all National Olympic Committees recommending greater participation of women in decision-making positions.

The letter: Following the release of the Olympic Agenda 2020 and the IOC Gender Equality Review Plan, the International Olympic Committee is pleased to see that many of the proposals on gender equality have been adopted and implemented by the Olympic Movement. In this context, the IOC organised an investigation into the National Olympic Committees. I would like to thank you sincerely for your cooperation and answers. The survey confirmed that we have made great progress, especially in the participation of athletes, with Tokyo 2020 promising to achieve a gender balance. However, there are still areas that need to be improved, especially the representation of women in decision-making positions. Therefore, I would like to reiterate the decision of the IOC Executive Board in December 2016: "It is recommended that members of the Olympic Movement set a minimum target of 30% for the representation of women in their governing bodies by 2020 and adopt accompanying measures to help them achieve this goal". Let us work together to set an example and achieve this goal. As always, the IOC remains available to support you in this regard as well. I wish you all the best and please #StayStrong #StayActive #StayHealthy.
