Griffith University acknowledges the people who are the traditional custodians of the land, pays respect to the Elders, past and present, and extends that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

More collaborative workshop than lecture, this special event will incorporate insights from various individuals working in the areas of sport, diversity and inclusion, Indigenous Studies, critical race theory and themes of intersectionality.  A small groups discussion session between speakers and attendees is also included. Public are welcome to participate in an interactive discussion of skills sharing and brainstorming to further strengthen stratergies and resources that address issues of racism in sport from women’s and non-binary individuals perspectives.

Enormous thanks to our sponsor: The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research, Griffith University, and all the collaborators/speakers (listed above), Centre Director Professor Susan Forde and Acting Director A/Prof Halim Rane, Prof Simone Fullagar plus GU event, PR and communication staff including Amy Wallace and Kim Podger. We will be looking for more funding to invite more local speakers plus interstate and overseas guests next round, next year. Fingers crossed 🙂
