Sign Our Charter

We are extremely excited and proud to launch the Race Equality Charter. This charter is vital in the journey to delivering equality in the sporting world. We here at Sporting Equals, along with wider sector research have determined that people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities still encounter significant disparities.

Greater progress, positive action and outcomes are now needed to ensure all organisations benefit from the wealth of diverse talent on offer. The time to ensure this positive change is now. By signing our charter, you will aid us with the ability to highlight further, these disparities, so that we may alleviate them. This Charter is comprised of three principles:

  • Capture ethnicity data and intelligence - This is important to enable you to establish a baseline position and measure your progress over time. Regular monitoring and publication of progress is also a crucial step towards an organisation being perceived as open and transparent.
  • Commit to tackling underrepresentation at all levels through positive action - This is about adopting appropriate policies, practices and programmes to increase opportunities for BAME communities.
  • Celebrate positive role models and stories - Highlighting and promoting positive BAME role models in elite and grassroots sport goes a long way in gaining trust and promoting positive perceptions among BAME communities.

By signing this charter, you will be greatly helping us to shine a light on the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) community and make a change.
