Guidelines launched to include gender diverse people in sport

by Team BV

Bowls Victoria is committed to providing opportunities for everyone to participate in bowls and feel welcome regardless of their sex or gender identity.

To provide guidance to sporting clubs on promoting the inclusion and participation of transgender and gender diverse people in sport, the Australian Human Rights Commission, in partnership with Sport Australia and the Coalition of Major Professional and Participation Sports have launched the ‘Guidelines for the inclusion of transgender and gender diverse people in sport’.

The guidelines aim to make clubs aware of their legal obligations to be inclusive under the Sex Discrimination Act 1984, and make suggestions on how to create and maintain inclusive environments. To view and download a copy of these new guidelines, please click here.
