The Sport and Recreation Alliance is delighted to have teamed up with Pride Sports to deliver a series of LGBT+ inclusion webinars throughout June in celebration of Pride Month 2020.

The sessions will provide insight, strategies and good practice solutions for engaging LGBT+ people in sport and physical activity.

Delivered by a host of leading professionals, they will cover topics such as including trans people in sport, inclusive coaching techniques and how to communicate LGBT+ inclusion work across social media and other channels.

Alliance CEO, Lisa Wainwright, will be a guest speaker on the final webinar which will explore the advantages of LGBT+ inclusion in governance structures, potential challenges in recruiting more diversely and strategies for success.

Lisa, who herself is a passionate advocate of the LGBT+ community, spoke about the new partnership.

“We are really proud to announce our support for this new and exciting webinar series. Working in partnership with Pride Sports on this project will help to transform how our organisations are able to reach and empower LGBT+ communities.

“The more people we educate, the better access LGBT+ people will have to inclusive environments. This is vital as we look to engage with every individual in our sector, from grassroots participation right to the very top of sports governance.

“Sexuality or gender identity should be irrelevant to a person’s engagement in sport or physical activity and we hope these webinars will inspire clubs, individuals and organisations to connect with new audiences and champion the key message that sport is for everyone.”

The series of workshops gets underway on Tuesday 2 June and all webinars are free to attend. For more information and to register, please visit https://www.sportandrecreation.org.uk/events/srapride2020.
