The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

At the Cutting Edge: Women in Sport
13 October 2021
16:00—17:30
World championships are being held in more and more sports, which are also gaining recognition as Olympic disciplines. Women are being presented with new opportunities in sport. The International Olympic Committee is working to increase female participation in various sports, and to ensure that men and women are equally represented at the Games. The pandemic has had a major impact on revenue streams for the sports industry, and has exacerbated disparities in athletes’ salaries. It has also had a negative effect on the motivation of many athletes, who are less inclined to continue their sporting careers given the lack of fans in the stands and competitions being cancelled. National and international sporting organizations are putting special programmes in place to support women in sport. These focus on a range of areas, including helping women to continue working in sport after their professional careers are over, and developing junior sport.

What can be done to make physical culture and sport more prestigious and appealing to women? How can sport help change women’s lives? What successful experience to help women build a career in physical culture and sport after retiring from a career as an athlete could be rolled out? And what successful experience to get more women involved in running sports organizations could similarly be applied more widely?
