Abstract

 

 

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has, as one of its core objectives, the issue of gender balance in Olympic sports. The IOC has for some time expressed concern at the level of women’s involvement in decision-making roles within member sports organisations and has a commitment to achieve a 20% participation rate of women in decision-making positions in national and international sports organisations. Detailed analysis of the gender balance of New Zealand sport was last done in 1994.

 

The New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC), through its Women in Sport Working Group, employed Algate to quantify the extent to which there is gender balance in leadership and decision-making positions in New Zealand sport.
