The IOC announced that it has increased the number of women on commissions by 32%. Considering the number of female Olympic athletes continues to grow, having more women active in the IOC ensures that women’s voices are being heard within the Olympics. It is great to see the IOC letting more women sit at the table. This step is one of the initiatives outlined in the 2020 Agenda. After much controversy over the bidding process and other issues brought up by IOC members, bid cities, and other stakeholders, the 2020 Agenda is paving a way for a bright future for the Olympic Games. Below are some links to more information about the 2020 Agenda initiatives and information on women in the Olympics.
