Fair go, sport! - Phase 1

About Phase 1

Commencing in March 2010, Phase 1 of the project is now complete.

This project aimed to increase awareness of sexual and gender diversity and to promote safe and inclusive environments in hockey; and develop a flexible model of engagement that can be adapted for other sporting codes and their governing bodies. Using an asset-based action learning approach, the project:

  • engaged key stakeholders in identifying existing policies, codes and procedures, and map experiences, practices, attitudes and perceptions in order to develop pilot interventions at all levels of hockey
  • implemented, with key stakeholders, pilot interventions to promote safe and inclusive environments and reduce homophobia
  • developed a flexible model for creating safe and inclusive environments in hockey that can be transferable to other sports.
