In 2021, FESI has signed a pledge in support of the “HealthyLifestyle4All” initiative, an EU driven campaign aimed at increasing awareness of a healthy lifestyle across generations and to improve access to sport. Bearing in mind the EU campaign’s focus on inclusion and non-discrimination, FESI is committed to work alongside the European Commission to help promote sport and physical activity among teenage girls through the “StrongHER” campaign.
Join the movement and SIGN our Manifesto:
Promoting women coaching role
Creating the proper environment and equipement
Developing women sporting role models
“Attracting and developing more women into leadership roles within the sport industry requires company-wide change and, in my experience, this has to be driven from the top. It requires increased levels of senior engagement in gender balance and CEO-driven initiatives to recruit, promote and retain women. Equality in leadership is not a women’s issue; it’s a business issue”.
“Every sport is important for every community. For health, for personality, for experience, for friendships. We wanted to involve girls a little more in – as everyone says – “men sports”. We wanted to break the barriers for girls, to show them they can do anything as well as the boys. We wanted to be role models for them, as women athletes and coaches.”
