Sport Integrity Framework: Supporting diversity
11 June 2019
Every Kiwi has the right to participate in sport and recreation within a welcoming and inclusive environment, and to be treated with respect, empathy and positive regard irrespective of age, ability, ethnicity, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, political beliefs or socio-economic status.
All those who deliver sport should ensure they create an environment which is inclusive and supports diversity - understanding that each individual is unique, and recognising, and responding to, our individual differences and needs.
Sport NZ’s participant-centred approach provides a starting point for encouraging diversity in sport and requires consideration of the social and physical environment that must be created to ensure that the needs of all participants can be met.
Sport NZ role
Sport NZ provides the sector with advice on all aspects of diversity, and tools and resources in areas of particular focus, such as gender diversity on Boards, as well as supporting various diversity initiatives in the sector.
