MSSA plans to push for gender equality on CAES.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is at the forefront of ensuring that gender equality exists at all levels within MSSA, be it on the playing field, and all the way up to the office of the President.

For years too, MSSA has strongly advocated gender equality on International Esports Federation (IESF), but has unfortunately met with some strong resistance. Nevertheless, MSSA every year continues to advocate such at such august body's General Meeting, and, MSSA has noticed that those against are becoming fewer in number.

As part of ensuring gender equality, MSSA too is pushing for such on the Confederation of African Esports (CAES).

Up until now, from the founding of CAES in 2013, every Executive Committee member has been a male.

Considering that esports is a sport that is available to all, such a composition on the Executive Committee is out of line.

MSSA will, therefore be advocating radical changes to ensure gender equity in the hope that Africa can lead the way.
