WE BELIEVE that a safe, welcoming and inclusive sport system is one where those in every role in sport (athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, board members and administrators) feel that: they belong and are valued; they participate in and can enjoy safe environments; their voices are heard; they have a right to choice and consent; they face no inequitable barriers to leadership roles, and they are encouraged and supported to take these on if they so choose, and there are people like them among every role in the sporting system. They are able to participate and bring their whole self to whatever field, arena or boardroom that they choose.
We have a shared responsibility to come together around our values and take action towards a new way, for a societal transformation where the commitment to a safe, welcoming and inclusive sport environment is a shared vision.
We believe that collaboration and a shared vision results in better outcomes.
We believe that a deeper understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion among all stakeholders is crucial to progress.
We will be avid promoters to those that we work with about our commitment to this area in all that we do and the steps to undertake this work.
