Recognition for our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion progress

11/06/2021 00:00, In Blog /

Welsh Athletics is working hard with our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Board subgroup to ensure we are embedding ED&I in all that we do across the sport in Wales as we move forward with our long-term strategy through to 2026. We recently submitted evidence for assessment against the national Equality Standard for Sport and were pleased to gain recognition at the intermediate level.

Our Non-Exec Director for Equality, Helen Adams, said:

 “Delighted that we've achieved Intermediate Level of the Equality Standard. This is great news for Welsh Athletics and recognises the work undertaken to date. Thanks to all for your support and commitment to help us achieve this.”

Welsh Athletics will continue to work hard to ensure the sport is inclusive for all in Wales, whether as an athlete, volunteer, coach or official. Within the UNITE goal of our strategy we've committed to: 

  • Ensure athletics is a safe and inclusive sport for all
  • Continue to forge strong links with Disability Sport Wales
  • Bring new people from all backgrounds into our athletics family
