Red Deporte, along with nine other entities, has been chosen by UN Women and the Valencia Club de Fútbol to form a working group whose objective is to perform the interchange and development of women’s empowerment techniques and promoters of gender equality through football.

Red Deporte promotes gender equality in all of its programs at all levels. Nevertheless, bringing together these ten NGOs from five continents has been an extremely interesting step forward in the development of skills that allow us to improve the quality of all of our sports programs regarding equality and women’s empowerment. The workshop has allowed for the exchange of high-level football training activities in gender equality, the prevention of violence against women and girls, and the promotion of self-esteem and leadership through sport.

The participating entities have had the privilege of staying in the Valencia CF academy facilities between the 9th and 15th of May. The representatives of the ten invited organizations, UN Women staff and professional football trainers from Valencia CF took part in the training.
