Basketball England is recruiting members for its new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.
The committee, which was sanctioned by the BE board in December, will help the organisation take a stronger approach to tackling discrimination and promoting fairness and respect across the sport.
The move aims to build on engagement between BE and the basketball community to promote the sport as accessible and fair for everyone, at every level - playing, coaching, officiating, volunteering, administration, employment and positions of influence.
It follows discussions around discrimination, how to oppose it and the anti-racism protests of this year, as well as analysis levels of representation in roles within the game.
Basketball England is looking for knowledgeable, inspirational and skilled candidates from within and outside basketball to support, advise and challenge the BE board as part of the philosophy that #TogetherWeAreBasketbALL.
BE is keen to attract people from a variety backgrounds, including legal and regulatory, community, safeguarding, EDI, grass roots basketball, club, coach, officiating environments, education, campaigning, behavioral change and social inclusion.
The committee will be chaired by BE board member Benny Bonsu. The closing date for applications is 11 March.
It is a very exciting time to be part of our great game and Basketball England as we work through major reforms to modernise our organisation and it services, and develop the game. We are also promoting a new campaign to engage more women and girls in basketball.
