The Mission

Diversity in Sport Day is a global effort based on local action. The level to which each individual or organization participates is at their own discretion. Each individual and organization has their own reasons to celebrate, motivate and advocate for Diversity in Sport on August 28. We honor that individual diversity, knowing our message is stronger together.

Everyone involved with Diversity in Sport Day will be able to promote and celebrate this day in whatever form best suits their needs: be it strictly to show support through an online, social media campaign;  host a registration party for an upcoming event; a day to recruit new participants; or launch a new fundraising campaign, our goal is to create greater awareness and connectivity for those who already promote diversity and inclusion, particularly through the use of sport, as part of their mission.
