Similar to the 2016 and 2017 Forums we will focus on a wide range of issues relevant to diversity and inclusion in sport. We'll hear about the challenges faced by children and young people when they feel unsafe in sport; about the attitudes and behaviours that impact on people with disability; about what it takes to succeed for a women in a male dominated sport; about the innovative solutions to welcome LGBTI participants in sport and what we can learn from best practices from overseas.

The Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Forum is a TEDx style event featuring short, sharp presentations that are meant to get you thinking about inclusion and diversity issues in sport. It's a unique annual event that brings together people at the forefront of diversity and inclusion.
There will be ten speakers in the day. Each speaker will talk for 12-15 minutes. Following each session there will be panel discussion debate and audience questions hosted by sports journalist Francis Leach.
Talks will be punctuated by the latest and best videos and social media campaigns on topics relevant to the Forum.
Attendees will have time to network and meet with colleagues in the sector in a friendly and welcoming environment.
