The IOC Women and Sport Trophy represents opportunity, recognition and empowerment.
Each year, the IOC Women and Sport Awards are given to women, men or organisations who have made remarkable contributions to the development, encouragement and reinforcement of women and girls’ participation in sport
Introduced in 2000, the award highlights role models and change agents in the pursuit of gender equality. Six trophies are distributed each year, one for each of the five continents and one at world level. In 20 years of Awards, there have been 116 recipients from 65 different nations.
The winners’ work to promote gender equality through different projects is also supported with a grant to help them continue and extend their work.
