Chris Grant; Keynote Speaker at AGM
At this years Welsh Sports Association AGM we will be joined by Chris Grant, who will deliver our keynote address on the opportunity we must all seize to address equality and inclusion issues. In this keynote, Chris will draw on his extensive experience at all levels of sport to explain why one of the sector’s biggest challenges – taking equality seriously – is also its greatest opportunity.
CHRIS GRANT – MINORITY INTEREST?
How Inclusion and Diversity Can Help Save Welsh Sport
The Welsh Sports Association AGM, 16th November 2020 – 19.00 – 20.30.
WSA members and non-members will hear about the challenges we must all face in making sport more inclusive. With the pandemic having exacerbated many underlying equality issues in sports participation, and the Black Lives Matter movement highlighting the stark inequality faced by people in Wales, we must all step up to the challenge and work of reforming our approach to diversity and inclusion in sport.
