The International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) has created an online platform dedicated to initiatives that engage women in sport.

In its attempt to promote and impact the field of women in sport, the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) has created the Women in Sport platform. The platform comprises a collection of good practices aiming at promoting women’s participation in sport.

The collection of good practices includes 60 examples of initiatives displaying ways of advancing women’s participation at all levels of sport, especially at the community levels.

To be included in the collection of good practices, the initiatives must:

  • Offer knowledge and practical experience organisations can learn from;
  • Be adaptable to new settings;
  • Proven to be sustainable;
  • Be innovative.
