Leaders Meet: Diversity

 

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Here at Leaders we also recognise the power that sport has to connect people and create change, which is why we are delighted to bring you a series of events, Women In Sport and Black Excellence, that aim to champion excellence in diversity within the industry, accelerate the pace of change and inspire the next generation of sports executives.

Chain Conversations

The Chain Conversation content series aims to provide a platform to a diverse group of leaders from across the global sports industry, to showcase their stories and explore strategies for dealing with the challenges that face them currently.

 

Content will not focus on diversity and inclusion strategies, rather on the stories of individual leaders from diverse backgrounds; how they’re approaching the challenges to the industry posed by the current global crisis.

 

The first guest to feature is Clare Briegal, CEO of the International Netball Federation with Leaders Managing Director Laura McQueen asking the questions.
