SUCCESS means Strengthening good governance in the European sport community by providing women with necessary competencies in order to support gender balance and equality in decision-making in sport structures.
The National Olympic Committees of Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Lithuania and Slovakia have joined their efforts to contribute to the European overall aim of achieving a full gender balance in the representation in decision-making positions in sport governing bodies by 2020.
Project partners have developed the project to support women in sport by tackling identified problems. One of the key activities of the project is a sport management training programme. The main purpose of the training programme is to develop individual competences of women in sport.
Total of 48 women from Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Lithuania and Slovakia took part in the training programme. 8 participants from Lithuania were able to learn about the theoretical concepts and apply them in practice. Each participant had a mentor to support them during the training programme, which lasted for 7 months.
The main products of the training programme were the case studies developed by participants and hopefully implemented by their sport organisations.
The SUCCESS project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
