The Diversity and Inclusion in Sport Alliance (DISA) Forum is back for 2024 and tickets are now available!

The Forum, in hybrid format, will bring together leaders from across the Australian sport sector to discuss the 2024 topic - What is intersectionality and how can sport use the concept?

Intersectionality, as a term and concept, has surged in popularity and is rapidly informing work across many industries. Like any new concept, there is often confusion around how it is used in a practical sense. Sport in Australia has an exciting opportunity to use an intersectional lens to improve how safe environments are established and maintained to ensure everyone feels welcomed.

On the day, we'll discuss how inequality is not the outcome of individual intentions, but a result of systemic, institutional and structural barriers that need to observed and addressed. The event will feature experts from all levels of Australian sport, sharing experiences of their work across marginalised and underrepresented communities.
