From 17 to 20 May, the 7th IWG World Conference on “Women and Sport-2018” took place in Gaborone, Botswana. The ITK Leipzig held a teambuilding workshop with more than 40 participants from all continents.

Furthermore, the ITK Leipzig organized a successful ITK alumni meeting in the residence of the German Ambassador: 12 alumni from 7 countries and 11 generations came to the meeting. We’re very delighted that DOSB Vice President Prof. Dr. Gudrun Doll-Tepper, FINA Vice President, IOC member and ITK alumnus Sam Ramsamy, former Zimbabwe NOC president and IOC member Tommy Sithole, Botswana NOC General Secretary Tuelo Daniel Serufho, and Leipzig University Junior Professor Almut Krapf attended the Event!

The IWG World Conferences on Women and Sport are milestone events, which every four years focus global attention on specific goals and action steps aimed at offering men and women equal opportunities in the sport arena.

The economic, social and cultural impact of the many hundreds of delegates representing nations from all continents is significant and has resulted in concrete benefits for the previous host countries.
