D4.4 Policy Brief 1: support to the implementation of inclusive Gender Equality Plans


The policy brief focuses on three observations made during the first year of the SUPPORTER project at three different dimensions interlinked by the SUPPORTER context: institutionaldimension, sports education-dimension and the ‘widening’-dimension. It emphasises the need for contemplating the intersection of these dimensions in policy-making and the need for contextualising the assessment and progressive development of GEPs across Europe. Additionally, given the crucial role of sports in social inclusion, it also highlights the potential of sports, and correspondingly sports higher education as part of it, as a catalyst for gender+ equality societal changes. The aim of the policy brief is to communicate SUPPORTER’s policy-related observations and implications thereof to the EC.


This project is funded by the European Union's Horizon Europe programme under grant agreement No 101094529. Disclaimer: The current version of the deliverable has not been reviewed by the EC yet.
