Women in Cycling is a new initiative launched by CIE, ECF, Velokonzept, Mobycon and CONEBI aiming to help women to get more visibility, impact and leading seats in the cycling industry and in the entire sector. We welcome all women working in the cycling sector to join us to shape the sector forward! Women in Cycling will be kicked off at a digital launch event taking place on Wednesday 24 February from 3 to 4:30pm CET.

Women in Cycling seeks to boost equality and diversity in the sector, bring women working in the cycling sector in the spotlight and to provide networking, mentoring and training opportunities. We seek to facilitate a platform which will improve the presence of women in board places, panels, conferences, interviews and jobs. The vision of Women in Cycling is for a diverse, inclusive cycling sector that provides equal opportunities and contributes to achieving cycling's full potential.

What Women in Cycling wants to achieve:

  • Create an empowering platform for women from all parts of the sector with opportunities to network, exchange views and experiences, and collaborate on projects and initiatives that help achieve the vision.
  • Encourage organisations in the sector to adopt targets and policies that improve diversity and gender balance and increase representation of women in leadership roles.
  • Campaign for no more all male panels at cycling sector events.
  • Ensure the diverse experiences of women are taken into account and represented in decision making bodies, projects and processes that affect the sector.

At the event you will hear all about the network, have an opportunity to sign up to Women in Cycling Expertise Portal, meet our ambassadors and hear inspirational stories from women across the sector.
