Some 42 participants from 33 countries gathered in Brussels from 22-24 June for the European Athletics Women’s Leadership Seminar, a follow-up to the high successful Women in World Athletics Seminars which were held annually from 2013 to 2017.

The three day programme took place at the EOC EU Office and was opened by European Athletics Vice-President Jean Gracia which was followed by a robust programme of talks and seminars from women in prominent leadership positions in athletics as well as specialist academics.

Prominent speakers during the three-day seminar included IAAF Women’s Committee chairperson Esther Fittke, former vice-president of the German Athletics Federation Dagmar Freitag and IAAF Council Member Sylvia Barlag and European Athletics Young Leaders Community member Katrin Heyers.

The seminar took place as part of European Athletics’ ongoing efforts to reach gender equity and to implement the constitutional changes agreed during the last European Athletics Congress in Vilnius last October.
