Welcome to the third Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Forum. This years event will focus on solutions to issues of diversity and inclusion in sport. We have gathered some of the country’s top athletes, practitioners, policy makers, administrators and academics to give their short and sharp ideas and insights into what has excluded people from sport and what has worked to include people in sport.

The Forum will take place on 11th October 2018 at Melbourne Olympic Park, River Room - from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.

We have designed the forum so that speakers in the morning session are people who know, first hand, the challenges of inclusion and diversity. It’s their personal experience of inclusion at its best and its worst! The afternoon session speakers will talk about the solutions they and their organisations have worked on or are currently working on. Do they meet the challenges set out in the morning session? Are they making progress in tackling issues of diversity and inclusion?
