Women in Cycling
by CIE, ECF, Velokonzept, Mobycon and CONEBI
The Women in Cycling Expertise Portal aims to give a voice to women working in the cycling sector through increased visibility and influence, and increased opportunities to network with other women in the sector. This will help improve the presence and position of women in boards, panels, conferences, interviews and jobs. Women who are interested in speaking opportunities, interviews or jobs can sign up with their LinkedIn profile and specify their area of expertise. Congress organizers, companies looking for employees and head-hunters can use the platform to find women with the expertise that they are looking for. It is a call-to action that addresses the well-known phenomenon of all-male panels in the cycling sector and the significant underrepresentation of women in the sector more generally. The ultimate goal is to have a better and more inclusive representation of women particularly at decision-making levels, get broader perspectives on cycling topics and provide inspiration to younger generations. We tackle the myth that no suitable women can be found to occupy a seat in panels, boards, jobs, and media interviews.
