Community Engagement

Thrive with Pride Program

Helping to create respectful, educated and inclusive sporting communities across the country

The program aims to support rainbow athletes and allies with driving LGBTIQ+ inclusion initiatives within Australian sporting communities so we can help celebrate and empower LGBTIQ+ peoples.

The AIS has engaged the expertise of Pride in Sport and Proud 2 Play to create a program supported by LGBTIQ+ and inclusion experts. In 2023 our athlete ambassadors will look to undertake LGBTIQ+ competency education sessions from inclusion experts and work with their chosen sporting organisation to run an LGBTIQ+ engagement.

Other opportunities include, monthly sessions featuring LGBTIQ+ sporting guests and the opportunity to be involved in key LGBTIQ+ community engagement events.
