There are significant differences in terms of sport participation in Flanders, with men participating more frequently compared to women. Gender inequality in sports participation data is also reflected in the position of women within the governing bodies of sport federations. Findings show that – without exaggerating – sport federations are male dominated in absence of women in positions of power and influence. However, achieving gender equality is one of the main priorities of the VUB. For this reason, researchers from SASO – Veerle De Bosscher, Hebe Schaillée and Inge Derom – will be collaborating on a recently awarded Erasmus+ project on gender in sport. The objective of the project entitled “Gender Equality Toolkit for generation Z (GETZ)” is to develop, deliver and evaluate an innovative educational resource specifically designed to educate Generation Z on the issues relating to gender equality and equal opportunities in sport. Members of Generation Z who are born in the mid-1990s to early 2000s are typically thought of as being comfortable with technology. With this in mind GETZ will be delivered via a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to facilitate broad dissemination of the project’s intellectual outputs and results. Each of the four partner universities in four European countries will select resources from the GETZ toolkit to deliver to undergraduate sports students. Students involved in the GETZ project will also get the opportunity to work with sports clubs through GETZ specific case studies to gain first hand exposure to decision making processes associated with leadership of grassroots sport. Our research group Sport & Society of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel is one of the partner universities, together with the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands (coordinator), Molde University College in Norway and the University of Worcester in England.
