The charity released the results of its seventh annual audit into the numbers and experiences of women on the board and in senior leadership roles in NGBs in England and Wales.

Women in Sport is calling on the NGBs to move beyond the 30% target for gender diversity on boards and to implement broader change to encourage women into the business of sport and to support their development. This, the charity believes, will be for the benefit of the NGBs’ bottom line, the whole workforce and sports participants.
