Join Team Sydney for the Change the Game conference

LAST UPDATED // Friday, 22 April 2016 16:06 Written by // Cec Busby

Team Sydney’s will be presenting a special one day conference, Change the Game, aimed at combating homophobia and promoting more inclusivity in sport.

The results of the 2014 Out in the Fields survey showed that 80% of those surveyed had experienced some form of homophobic abuse. Change the Game hopes to reduce those figures by providing an interactive, educational forum that promotes a healthy lifestyle with inclusivity in sport.

The theme of the conference will be managing homophobia and transphobia in sport to allow athletes to participate in an unrestricted and safe way. The conference aims to leverage the work done by Come Out To Play, Out On The Fields, Play by the Rules and Sports Without Borders.

Change The Game aims to provoke dialogue that leads to cultural change. Change the Game takes place on May 7 at 99 York Street Sydney. Go to teamsydney.org.au/2016-conference.
