On 8 March this year (International Women’s Day) Women in Sport published their Beyond 30% report which showed that 65% of the organisations funded by Sport England and/or UK Sport have more than 25% women on their boards. While this is a significant improvement on 2015, when the comparable figure was just 46%, clearly there is more to be done. This is why the Code for Sports Governance published 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. The governance code is mandatory for all sports bodies seeking public funding. National Governing Bodies who do not comply with the code will need to have agreed with the funding body an action plan which sets out how they will become compliant with that requirement by 31 October this year.
