We have designed the Leaderboard Academy, especially to equip Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) professionals and BAME former athletes with the skills they need to influence and promote equality and diversity (particularly race equality) in the boardrooms of sports organisations. The ultimate aim is to increase BAME participation in sport at all levels. Presently there are only 14% BAME board members, out of a UK population of 14%. The Academy is focused on getting talented people onto boards, people who have empathy and understanding of race equality issues, and the ability to communicate and share that at board level.
