Summary

Our goal is to highlight the inspiring women in our community and raise awareness towards discrimination and stereotypes around women in sport. We aim at raising money to support women in our team, bring more women to our activities, answer their specific needs with appropriate equipment and make men more aware of inclusivity so that our mixed activities feel safe and welcoming. This month will be full of activities, training, and focused on solidarity, mutual understanding and support.

Challenge

We regularly implement concrete measures for gender equity and women empowerment in every aspect of our activities, but women participation in our spaces is still variable. Discrimination towards women in society and in sports remains a challenge we want to continue addressing. We implement women-only classes and open hours in our gyms, but some mixed classes remain predominantly masculine, that is why we need to continue encouraging gender diversity and the fact that women feel comfortable.

Solution

Organizing a full month dedicated to highlighting women in our community and events designed for them will encourage more and more women to come to our gyms ! This project addresses gender equity at many levels: awareness raising, events for community building and making men and everyone in our community more aware of discrimination and stereotypes towards women.

Long-Term Impact

We intend to embed a culture of gender equity in every aspect of our work and that women know and integrate how much they are valued and will be considered in our communities. By improving women participation in our projects, we aim at improving participation from women on the move at every level of the organization, including at decision making level.
