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.
