Champion
Kim Andersen
President, World Sailing
Kim Andersen

I am very proud to be an International Gender Champion. Promoting gender equality is not only important for my organisation, World Sailing, but for international sport as a whole. Through the means of sport, we hope to have our own impact on developing a society that is more ethical, equal and effective. Together as Champions, we can make a huge difference.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.

I commit to undertake the following:

  • Championing to ensure that World Sailing committees and panels are of mixed gender.

  • Take the lead in our sport to ensure we have a 50/50 representation of male and female athletes at sailing’s events in the Olympic Games.
