FCGC Proud 2 Play

In January 2018, Footscray City Gymnastics Club were proud to host a Trans and Gender Diversity Inclusion in Sport workshop for the benefit of club staff and volunteers. 

Key staff member, Thomas Daddow, commented: “This was a great professional development opportunity, enabling our staff to be up to date with their knowledge regarding gender diversity. Our club feels very strongly that Gymnastics should be accessible for all, and we want to do our best to role model inclusion and diversity at our club.”

The workshop, delivered by Proud 2 Play, supports community clubs in providing safe and inclusive environments for the LGBTQI community.

“James the presenter set up a great, open atmosphere that allowed our staff to feel safe in discussing the issues and working through any questions they had. It was great to reinforce to our staff that this is a very important area of inclusion, and to highlight areas we can all improve in.”

Clubs who wish to arrange professional development on the topic of gender diversity are encouraged to contact Gymnastics Victoria at info@gymnasticsvictoria.org.au for further information.
