Michael Woods, Founder Inclusive Sport Design

Inclusive Sport Design is a business dedicated to supporting the sport community at all levels to achieve diversity and inclusion outcomes. Our support of equal rights, social justice and anti-discrimination goes without saying and therefore we 100% support marriage equality.

We recognise that diversity makes workplaces, sport clubs and communities stronger and more successful. We support the right of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) people to work play sport and live in environments free of prejudice and discrimination, enjoying the essential freedoms experienced by the broader community.

We believe that individual rights and liberties are critically important. They are essential in the creation of a healthy, harmonious and open society. An equitable society, free of discrimination, allows all workplaces, sports clubs and organisations to function at their best. This has obvious benefits. Australia, a nation with a robust democratic tradition, would also benefit greatly from allowing all its citizens to be treated equally.

The Australian people are increasingly supportive of marriage equality, with a recent study showing 72 per cent believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. We agree. Globally, over 20 countries have passed laws to allow same-sex marriage, including the United States of America, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and Great Britain – which did so with lower support for marriage equality than Australia is seeing right now. Times have changed.

Not only is marriage equality the right thing to do, it also helps improve workplaces and sports clubs of all sizes by allowing everyone to be treated with equal respect and feel included.

Equality in the workplace and in sport works; Discrimination does not.

We therefore support marriage equality.

 

Sincerely,
