  • Design, implement, monitor and evaluate an action plan to achieve gender equality.
  • Understand what a gender mainstreaming strategy is.
  • Implement a gender mainstreaming approach in sport policies, programmes, actions and in sporting organisations (when devising a human-resources policy, organising sports events, developing a communication strategy, allocating funds, renovating a sport facility, etc.).
