Graphic design of the words Game Changers. Each letter in GAME morphs into a human shape, representing diversity in sport.

Diversity in sport matters

Sport-related incidents have ignited debates on homophobia, religious freedom, casual racism in Australian culture, disability inclusion, gender pay gap and more. 

In 2021 alone, we have seen star Olympic runner, Caster Semenya banned from the Tokyo Olympics due to her natural testosterone levels and US shot-putter Raven Saunders at Tokyo made headlines for her podium demonstration – crossing her arms into an X shape, in representation of “the intersection of where all people who are oppressed meet”.

Join four-time Paralympian Ellie Cole, Tokyo Olympian Dylan Pietsch, and UNSW student Jordan White as they boldly address issues concerning gender, sexuality, disability and racism in the world of sports and what you can do to help.
