The University of Hertfordshire is the lead research institution for the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG) 2022-2026, and also manages the Women in Sport High Performance pathway (WISH) supported by Olympic Solidarity.
This project presents a unique and exciting fully-funded opportunity to lead on research aligned with the work of the IWG and WISH to drive positive change for women and sport globally.

The WISH and IWG programmes provide access to key stakeholders for data collection, and dissemination of findings will be aligned with IWG activities which will include the presentation of a progress report in 2024 to coincide with 30 years since the establishment of the IWG and the Paris Olympic/Paralympic Games.
