Why male allies are so important for gender equality in sport

This blog was written by Michelle Redfern, Strategic Partner and Senior Consultant based in Melbourne, Australia, and was originally published on her blog. --- Life has been very full here at Advancing Women in Business and Sport. We have been working on the next Advancing Women in Sport research series – stories of women in sport, from athlete to the boardroom. I have interviewed women who are athletes, coaches, administrators and board members about their experiences in sport. They are funny, forthright and above all, worth listening to if you are serious about gender equality in your sport. This series will be in a different format to our previous two reports. We’ll be releasing video interviews supported by a written report for each woman interviewed. So you can watch, listen and read about how to make sport a much more equitable place for women.

Leadership Barriers to DEI and How to Address Them

According to a survey by Glassdoor, more than 50% of people think their companies should be doing more to increase workforce diversity. It all started in 1964, more than 50 years ago, when Congress passed the Civil Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. The act, of course, applies to employers. Yet after all of the civil unrest we experienced in 2020, how many times did you hear a CEO or spokesperson for an organization say that they are committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture? Probably too many to count.
