Hartpury’s Diversity Date will promote equality and inclusion

Hartpury is launching a series of online talks to promote equality, diversity and inclusion within the sports and exercise industry.

Diversity Date provides a new platform for academics and practitioners working within the sector to share their extensive research and experiences in discussion with equality, diversity and inclusivity campaigner Dr John Fernandes, Programme Manager for BSc Sport and Exercise Sciences at Hartpury University.

As a member of the British Association of Sports and Exercises Sciences’ (BASES) Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee, Dr Fernandes wants to bring about positive change within the sport and exercise science industry worldwide.

Diversity Date aims to amplify the voices of under-represented groups and create role models for those in sport. As well as current industry professionals, the talks will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students exploring a career working within the sport and exercise industry.

Each fortnightly session of Diversity Date will be recorded and available to view on Hartpury’s Diversity Date channel on Vimeo, with the first of the series featuring Kelsie Johnson now online:
