Diversity & Inclusion in Sports Forum 2017

October 6, 2017

Join us for the 2017 Diversity and Inclusion in Sport National Forum, Melbourne

Hosted by: Paul Kennedy - national sports presenter on ABC News Breakfast

Following the successful inaugural 2016 Diversity and Inclusion Forum, this years event will focus on ‘forward thinking’ in diversity and inclusion in sport. We have gathered some of the country’s top practitioners, policy makers, administrators and academics to give their short and sharp ideas and insights into what works now and what could work in the future to ensure the sporting landscape reflects the multi-cultural and diverse community we live in.

This year’s theme is: ‘Future Thinking in diversity and inclusion in sport’. The focus will be on sharing new approaches to greater equip the sporting industry to meet the many challenges and opportunities in this area.
