With the brilliant support of the National Lottery Community Fund, Stonewall Sport are running a free digital workshop on 23 March 2021.
Join Stonewall Sport for an online summit for the LGBT+ community in sport, focusing particularly on empowering those who are often underrepresented in sport: LGBT+ PoC; trans, including non-binary people; lesbian, bi, and trans (LBT+) people in women’s sport; and disabled LGBT+ people.
- Session Aims
The day will be split into two, the morning sessions and the afternoon sessions:
The morning sessions will be centred around knowledge building and sharing. We will be exploring what makes a space inclusive and inclusive marketing, funding and grant applications. We will hear from LGBT+ people within sport succeeding in these areas.
The afternoon will be focused on how we can support and empower each other as well as ourselves through role modelling inclusive behaviours and collective power. We will hear from guest speakers on their experiences and top tips on making sport more accessible and how to encourage allies to create change.
- Who can attend?
The programme is aimed at those who are often underrepresented in sport due to the categories and opportunities across sport structures.
Our sessions are aimed specifically at LGBT+ people of colour (PoC); trans, including non-binary people; lesbian, bi and trans (LBT+) people in women’s sport; and disabled LGBT+ people.
We actively encourage people of all ages to attend, however you must be 18+.
