The Olympic Federation of Ireland (OFI) submitted its National Action Plan (NAP).

The Olympic Federation of Ireland (OFI) is a partner of the Erasmus+ project “Guidance to Achieve More Equal leadership in Sport” (GAMES).
Within the GAMES’ project framework, the OFI has developed a National Action 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 Action 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.

The OFI’s National Action Plan includes a number of important deliverables under the Leading by Example pillar of the OFI’s Gender Equality Strategy. In particular it will focus on Administrative and Governance mechanisms to enhance gender equality, both within our own organisation and in partnership with our member federations.

The OFI is going to start implementing the National Actions Plan in the near future including a National Launch Event in October 2023.

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