Pride in Sport winners
In 2018, Melbourne University Sport became the first University sport organisation to become a signatory to ACON’s Pride in Sport program. By doing so, we made a commitment to actively work to ensure that all we consider “Sport” to be at our organisation will be inclusive and welcoming to LGBTQIA+ identifying people.
At the Pride in Sport awards in June, we were honoured to be announced as the joint highest ranking sports organisation for LGBTI+ inclusion across Australia. It’s wonderful to receive this acknowledgement of our work done so far, and we are looking forward to seeing what we can achieve moving forward with the program. Sport is for everybody, and this is a vision we will continue to work towards at Melbourne University Sport!
