We ran an online equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) week, supplementary to and in line with, the students’ curriculum. We invited guest speakers to challenge a range of social issues in and around sport. We tried to work within protected characteristics of the UK Equality Act (2010), with a specific focus on gendered issues and the gender binary in sports, whilst ensuring diversity across our speakers. The speakers related to some aspects that were also being taught within the curriculum, and additionally they offered the opportunity to examine ‘real-life’ examples. We had speakers who challenged the status quo, for example a diversity and inclusion representative from a national governing body, a high-level woman’s rugby coach, and a triple world champion in women’s age group hockey. Additionally, we engaged with some Early Career Researchers (ECRs), who presented their initial PhD findings around non-binary and transgender issues.
