Please do join us for a discussion on the importance of diversity in sports media, both in front of and behind the camera, and what it means for business. This will also include a fascinating practical Q&A session led by our host Jamie Hooper, Founding Director of Inclusive Cultures, across different diversity lenses with leaders in their field.

Jamie also sits on the board for the Federation of Gay Games, Sport for Confidence, and the Black Swimming Association, bringing a truly rounded and intersectional approach to inclusion.
