Inclusive leadership is emerging as a unique and critical capability helping organisations adapt to diverse customers, markets, ideas and talent. But to fully capitalize on their cognizance of bias, leaders also must express both humility and empathy. This article describes organizational practices that can help leaders become more inclusive and enhance the performance of their teams.
There are economic, cultural, social and health benefits to having more women involved in leadership roles. Helping sport and recreation organisations understand the business case for gender diversity and motivate them to address gender inequality in their organisations. The Case for Change is a key enabler of the cultural change required to improve gender balance within the sport and recreation sector. For change to occur, sport and recreation organisations and other key stakeholders must understand the effects of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, as well as the underlying reasons for these dynamics.

Sport participation has been shown to be associated with health and social benefits. However, there are persisting inequities and barriers to sport participation that can prevent children and young people with diverse backgrounds and abilities from accessing these benefits. This mixed methods study investigated how diversity is understood, experienced and managed in junior sport. Gender and a range of attitudes about diversity were also strongly related. On average, we found that those who identified as men were more likely to support a pro-performance stance, be homophobic, endorse stricter gender roles, and endorse violence as a natural masculine trait. In addition, those who identified as men were less likely to hold pro-disability attitudes. These findings suggest that the participation-performance tension and gender affect to what extent, and how, sports clubs engage children and young people with diverse backgrounds and abilities.
