Advanced Level of the Equality Standard for Sport achieved
14 October 2021
England Athletics and UK Athletics have been recognised nationally for their commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
Both have achieved the Advanced Level of the Equality Standard for Sport which is the highest level given by the Sports Council Equality Group, consisting of the five Sports Councils in the UK.
The award follows a joint submission by England Athletics and UK Athletics and the organisations were recognised for the close collaboration in delivering greater equity across the sport, from grassroots and clubs through to elite level.
The Advanced Level of the Equality Standard for Sport is given to those organisations that have made significant progress towards diversity within board, staff, coaches, officials, members and participants, mainstreamed equality through their functions, policies and procedures, and developed further initiatives to address each protected characteristic.
