Vicsport - Are you on Board?

In 2014 Vicsport initiated the Are You On Board? (AYOB) Campaign to support conversation and action around gender diversity on Victorian SSA boards. In 2015 Vicsport has develop three further campaign videos to raise awareness and assist sports to disseminate messages on the benefits of diversity and inclusion to Victorian grassroots sport organisations.





As part of the Campaign, Vicsport created and compiled tools to help SSA CEOs, Presidents and Board Members to put gender diversity on the agenda and take action. Since its release, the initial AYOB clip has been viewed hundreds of times and is now embedded into all Vicsport board training offerings. The 3 new videos follow on from the initial campaign and highlight the benefits of diversity and inclusion through:

  • The benefits of diversity on committees in grassroots sport (below)
  • The benefits to clubs and associations of strengthening welcoming and inclusive practice (coming May 28)
  • The benefits of being involved in sport for people with a disability (coming June 22)

As with the initial Campaign, each clip will be supported by a Call to Action outlining simple steps that clubs and associations can undertake to initiate or continue their inclusion journey.

This next phase in the campaign aims to provide an impetus for grassroots sporting organisations to initiate or continue the conversation around diversity and inclusion by clearly outlining the benefits for individuals, sport and the community.
