On Thursday, Running USA hosted a webinar on Inclusion Best Practices for Events with the Equality Institute.

Thanks to Bernadette Smith, Patti Flynn and Brooks Sports for making this presentation possible.  (If you missed the session, you can view it here.)

The Equality Institute surveyed Running USA members in early 2022 to direct the development of resources and guidelines for improving inclusiveness at events of all kinds.

Takeaways from the session include a comprehensive Event Inclusion Guide with best practices to put into action and a Transgender and Nonbinary Inclusion Policy Template that events can easily adopt. Both documents are available for download here:

 

This concludes the first phase of Running USA’s DEIA program, with phase two to be announced soon.
