We are delighted to announce that British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) is one of 36 organisations taking part in the innovative Leading for Renewal (LFR) programme.

Now in its second year, LFR is a yearlong inclusion and diversity initiative, made possible by a partnership between Sport England and Inclusive Employers.

LFR has been designed for Sport England partners to help them meet the aspirations of Sport England’s 10-year strategy, ‘Uniting the Movement’, which aims to transform lives and communities through sport and physical activity.

As the UK’s leading experts in Inclusion and Diversity, Inclusive Employers are the perfect partner to deliver this programme. LFR has been considerately designed to embed inclusion and diversity into the core functions and corporate priorities of participating organisations, and on a wider platform contribute and underpin their Diversity and Inclusion Action Plans.

This goal is realised through LFR’s three different programme tiers – Inclusive Leaders (for CEOs or equivalent), Inclusive Enablers (for Senior Managers), and Inclusive Influencers (for the wider workforce).

Each tier comprises webinars, events, toolkits and resources to support inclusion activity. The core messages and content are common across all three tiers but tailored to the specific roles and level of influence of participants and focused on delivering real inclusion progress at every level.

Jenny Morris, BUCS’ Director of Delivery, said: “One of BUCS’ primary goals is to drive inclusivity across sport and physical activity, that is why we are delighted to be participating in the Leading for Renewal programme.

We are committed to improving diversity and inclusion throughout our organisation and across all higher education sport. This programme allows staff throughout the organisation the opportunity to better understand how we can be more inclusive and how we can support others to be.

We want higher education sport to be available to everyone, and to be truly representative of our country. We are excited to be one of the organisations at the forefront of driving change.”
