Wednesday, 8 March 2017 : The number of women getting top jobs at UK sporting bodies is down by 6% since 2014, says a new study which calls the findings “extremely concerning”.
The Women in Sport survey also found just under half of Britain’s 68 sporting bodies have failed to meet new government guidelines.
By 1 April, organisations must have a minimum of 30% women on their board, or risk losing funding.
Nine of the 68 organisations have no women in senior leadership roles.
The British Taekwondo Council, the sport’s national governing body, has no woman in any leadership or board positions.
Overall the number of women on the boards of governing bodies is 30% on average.
