Governance in Sport – Encouraging diversity and inclusivity – College of Law Webinar

18 May 2021 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

Join the high profile panel as they examine the role of governance in sport and whether it assists in ensuring sports are more inclusive both at grass roots levels and more broadly, at the organisational level. The role governance in sport plays in stamping out discrimination and racism will be explored. What affirmative action measures have been introduced in Australia and the impact that we are seeing from those measures, and the positive impact of having women involved in the governance of sporting organisations.
