England Hockey strives to ensure that our game is played, watched, delivered, governed and enjoyed by all. We are committed to the principles of fair treatment for everyone, embracing differences and creating a culture where everyone is welcome.
We want to embed equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) into everything we do, and we recognise there are areas we must improve on. However, the hockey community is already undertaking great work to make our sport more diverse and inclusive. From engaging with local schools to widen access, providing opportunities for our Flyerz families, to whole heartedly supporting and welcoming people from the LGBTQ+ community. We want to capture all this great work and showcase it to others as real-life examples of what is possible and ignite a desire in others to follow.
We are especially keen to hear from the hockey community around three themes;
- Ways clubs/organisations have embedded ED&I into their structure / activity
- How clubs/organisations have engaged new audiences / participants / communities?
- How clubs/organisations have engaged their membership around ED&I?
