Faroese Confederation of Sports and Olympic Committee establishes new gender equality strategy

The Faroese Confederation of Sports and Olympic Committee [FCSOC] has approved a new gender equality strategy that will see the FCSOC and its Member Federations ensure a minimum 30/70 gender split in board membership by 2025, rising to a minimum 40/60 split by 2030.

Commenting on the gender equality targets, FCSOC President Elin Heðinsdóttir Joensen said, according to Aroundtherings.com:

“I am delighted that our Board has unanimously approved an important new gender equality strategy. Seven of our 24 sports federations already meet our new gender equality targets for 2025, while three federations meet our 2030 goal, so we are already travelling on this important journey. Importantly, the targets we are now committed to delivering will see our federations, and the FCSOC Board, actually exceed the IOC’s targets by 2030. This sends out a very strong and clear message about how seriously we take gender equality in Faroese sport.”
