FISU is constantly promoting gender equality under the supervision of the Gender Equality Committee (CEG).
The CEG was established in November 2011 to study and promote the inclusion of women at all levels of university sport, advocating equality and equity of opportunities for men and women in the field of physical activity, sport and recreation.
The Committee’s general objective is to promote gender equality in the university sports field worldwide through awareness raising and training of all those involved in its management and implementation. It also aims at developing policies oriented towards the application of the equal opportunity principle in competitive sport activities as well as in recreational, leisure and health activities. It provides a space for gender promotion in the management of world university sport, for information sharing and joint efforts oriented towards achieving equality between women and men.
