Title:

Press release: A woman on each UCI Commission

Date:

18.11.2013

Description:

The UCI today announced the new composition of its commissions. (Click here for UCI Commissions)

Members of 18 commissions have been appointed. In an unprecedented decision in the organisation’s history, at least one woman will sit on each of the commissions newly-designated under the Presidency of Brian Cookson.

In line with the manifesto commitments, three new commissions have been set up: the Women’s Commission, the International Development and National Federations’ Commission, and a Constitutional Review Panel.

The Cycling for All Commission has been separated into two bodies: the “Mass Participation Events” and “Advocacy/Cyclist’s Rights” Commissions. The UCI means to place particular emphasis on the development of these two areas.

Seven weeks after his election, Brian Cookson continues to implement the initiatives contained in his manifesto.

UCI President Brian Cookson declared: “I am delighted by this announcement, which helps reinforce the presence of women in cycling. It was one of the priorities of my mandate along with the international development of cycling and the reform of the governance of the UCI. Today we continue working to ensure our pledges are met.”
