UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) will join with the rest of the world to celebrate International Women's Day on Wednesday 8th March. 

The IOC and the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) will host the 2nd International Federation Women In Leadership Forum in Lausanne, Switzerland from 6th - 8th March.
 
A key objective of the forum is to empower women to assume more decision making positions in International and National Federations.
 
President of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee  (TTOC) Brian Lewis has been invited to be a panelist on day two (Tuesday 7th March) of the three day forum which gets underway on Monday 6th March.
 
The members of the panel that will discuss translating policies into practice - a framework to inspire change are Mrs Marisol Casado, IOC member and President of the International Triathlon Union (ITU), Dr Tamas Ajan, President of the International Weightlifting Federation( IWF) , Mrs Sarah Keane, President of the Olympic Council of Ireland and Brian Lewis , President of the TTOC and President of CANOC (the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees).
 
Editors Note:
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Federations (IFs) have developed a close partnership to allow women to fully enjoy sport at all levels. Thanks to this cooperation, all sports in the Olympic Games programme include women events with a projection of having full equality participation by 2020. 
 
The IF Women in Leadership Forum is in line with the Olympic Movement efforts to further increase women in leadership positions. It aims specifically to help women in mid and senior level positions, to stand successfully for the elections within their sports in particular; and more globally within the Olympic Movement.
 
The panel discussion organised on the afternoon of 7th March is part of the programme at the Forum. It provides a platform for men and women to discuss how the IOC's decision of setting a minimum target of 30% of women in decision-making positions can be achieved by 2020; and how this decision can be translated at field level. The panel sessions have been designed to be fully interactive.
