On 10 May, the second cooperation project for gender equality between the Council of Europe (Enlarged Partial Agreement on Sport - EPAS) and the European Commission was launched. The "All in Plus" project will run until March 2025 and consists of a large-scale data collection campaign on gender equality in sport in strategic areas such as leadership, coaching, participation, media coverage, gender-based violence, and gender equality policies and programmes.
During the launch event, and building on the results of the first "All in" project, a panel of representatives of the sport movement, governments and EU institutions including Annamarie Phelps (EOC Gender Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commission) and Violeta Birzniece (DG EAC, European Commission), as well as academics, athletes, journalists and experts discussed the state of play and existing challenges to gender equality in sport and sport organisations. The main aim was to share ideas, solutions and best practices already in place so that they could be broadly applied. The planned data collection and analysis will serve as an evidence base for the creation of new tools that are to help public authorities and sport organisations to elaborate and implement policies and strategic actions to fight gender inequality in sport.
