Empowering women - Advancing sport
Our story began in 1994 with the first World Conference on Women and Sport in Brighton, UK and the debut of the Brighton Declaration on Women and Sport. Chapter by chapter our story has continued with the help of thousands of dedicated women and men the world over.
Our independent coordinating body is currently located in Helsinki, Finland for the 2010 – 2014 quadrennial term and led by renowned international experts in the field who contribute their unique expertise to achieving the IWG’s mission: Empowering women – Advancing sport.
On June 12, 2014, we will open the 6th IWG World Conference on Women and Sport in celebration of 20 years of sustained advocacy.
