How to get there?

Public transport is the quickest and easiest way to get to and from an event at Melbourne & Olympic Parks. Trains, trams and buses operate frequently, dropping you right at the door of Australia’s premier sports and entertainment precinct. On site public car parking is very limited.

A short walk from Flinders Street train station via the William Barak footbridge allows attendees access to the City Entrance of Melbourne & Olympic Parks. The new Tanderrum Bridge is now the main entrance to Melbourne Park from the CBD, connecting directly into the precinct via Birrarung Marr.
For more information about getting there including timetables, fares and maps contact 1800 800 007 or visit Public Transport Victoria. 

When you get to Olympic Park you can follow the signs to the River Room and the Forum.  

Do you need to bring anything? 

Apart from your ideas and willingness to contribute then no, all the sessions are being professionally recorded and we will make all the Forum materials available to all participants via the Play by the Rules website.

By participating in this Forum you agree to be filmed throughout the day and all resources may be used by the Forum organisers (see our Terms and Conditions).

Are we going to be fed?

Absolutely – your registration includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. It’s a busy day but we still have time to eat, drink, network and discuss.

If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know –

Who should attend and how much is it?

Last year the event sold out, with over 180 sports leaders and practitioners attending the forum from a cross section of sport, government, academia and the community. This year’s diverse program once again applies to a broad range of individuals and organisations involved in the sport and active recreation sector. It also relates to those working in the diversity and inclusion space who are looking to learn from some of the issues and strategies developed to address these issues.

We keep costs for attending to a minimum. This is a non-profit event. The support we get from partners and registration fees cover the costs of running the forum each year. The Forum registration fee is $150. 

Who is behind the Forum? 

The 2018 Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Forum is a collaboration between Play by the Rules, the Centre for Multicultural Youth, Monash University, Victoria University, Oliver and Thompson Consultancy and The Inclusion Club. Our supporters include VicHealth, Sport and Recreation Victoria, Sportspeople and the Australian Sports Commission.
