The Latvian Olympic Committee (LOK) submitted its National Action Plan (NAP).

The Latvian Olympic Committee (LOK) is a partner of the Erasmus+ project “Guidance to Achieve More Equal leadership in Sport” (GAMES).

Within the GAMES’ project framework, LOK has developed a National Actions Plan to promote gender equality in leadership positions which has been informed by the GAMES’ Pool of Actions, as well as from the national trends that emerged in the GAMES baseline study. 

The National Actions Plan is a strategic document which includes the NOC’s objectives and relevant actions to reach set objectives whilst also addressing targeted actions for member organisations to improve gender equality in leadership positions. In other words, the National actions plan includes a roadmap for setting up concrete strategies including tangible actions and measurable timelines to improve gender equality in the leadership of the NOC whilst also including ad-hoc actions to encourage member federations of the NOC to boost gender equality in leadership and decision-making positions.

LOK’s National Actions Plan focuses on the topic’s actualization, development of a communication plan, clarifying the existing situation, addressing NOC Latvia members – National sport federations as well as other sports organizations – and putting the topic on the members’ agenda. 

Hence, LOK is going to start implementing the National Actions Plan in the near future. In the meantime, LOK is foreseeing organising the National Launching Event in October 2023.

Stay tuned with the progress of the project via the GAMES website and the Twitter account!
