Join our Director of Projects, Shaheen Bi at the England Athletics Exploration Day on Saturday March 16th at Nottingham Trent University. The session will look the lack of diversity in sports volunteering.
England Athletics recent volunteer survey results tell us that our volunteering community lacks diversity with only 3% from a Black Asian,Minority Ethnic Background.
The day will involve panel discussions to look at how we can make a sustainable change;
· How do we make volunteering more accessible for everyone?
· What is stopping more diverse groups of people from getting involved?
· How an everyone feel there is a role for them and be supported to do their bit?
The day involve panel debates and workshop discussions.
