According to figures collected recently by Women in Sport, 35% of organisations which are funded by Sport England and/or UK Sport have fewer than 25% women on their boards. This includes Chief Executives, Non-Executive Directors and Chairs. Further information is provided in Women in Sport's Beyond 30% report, which was published in March 2017 (https://www.womeninsport.org/resources/beyond-30-report).
The new Code for Sports Governance published by Sport England and UK Sport last October requires funded organisations to adopt a target of, and take all appropriate actions to encourage, a minimum of 30% of each gender on its board. This new governance code will be mandatory for all sport bodies seeking public funding from April this year.
Where a National Governing Body does not comply with the code and is seeking funding from Sport England or UK Sport, it needs to agree with the funding body an action plan which sets out how and by when they will become compliant with that requirement at the earliest possible date.
