TheStaff A platform & community
Sharing personal perspectives on sports, and fighting for equality and inclusivity in sport.
I don't believe the is a linear method to achieving diversity, equity and inclusion, so this is not a criticism of the frameworks in place at all. But, I do believe that the application of the framework can be improved. Diversify where you have quotas, chiefly lower down the pipeline, ensuring that there's a demographic balance coming through the pipeline. Not just the playing squad, but in the support structures too, from the boardroom to the on-field support.
"My vision for TheStaff and myself is to have a triple bottom line approach. Your purpose is fundamental, and I want to focus as much on social and environmental challenges as I do on commerce. My goal in life is to learn how to research, design, deliver and scale a social organization that uses the power of sport to help solve pressing societal challenges.
Hopefully, I can be part of the change too".
"Sport has the ability to set the precedent for gender and racial equality in all aspects of society. Women find their confidence and community when participating in sports. Society has progressed beyond women only being defined by their sexual value. At the same time, masculinity is evolving beyond proving manhood through physicality"
We’re delighted and proud to announce that along with 40 other international organizations, Fare Network has chosen our #BlackLivesMatter in football grant proposal to be developed. We can no longer stay silent as these issues continue to plague everyone around us. We want to fight discrimination through and in sport and we realize that sport can be used as a tool to affect change in society. And, we’re happy to have the platform to do so⚽️ So, stay tuned.
Charlotte Serwadi is an inspiration and an example to all those she comes across. Her longevity, spanning 20 years in cricket, is a testament of the dedication to the sport that helped change her life for the better.
