Exploring the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion of the Canadian Sport Industry

This project will examine the equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within the Canadian sport industry. The central research question is: “To what extent does the Canadian sport industry demonstrate principles of diversity, equity and inclusion; and to what effect are these corresponding values evident via policy and lived experiences.” The study will employ a mixed methods approach, building on a case study analysis to ground the study in industry practices and concerns, and to explore the effects of EDI in Canadian sport industry.
The objectives for this project are a) to offer a baseline assessment of the EDI of the Canadian sport industry b) to develop a EDI model and measure for the Canadian sport industry to address barriers and promote greater diversity in sport organizations, and c) to spark and support conversations to ultimately offer strategic guidance to address long-standing inequalities within our sport industry.
