UK Ultimate - Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Fundraising to support Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee projects

We wanted to update members about progress following the forum that was hosted in June.

The first point to acknowledge is confirmation from those at the forum that people of colour do experience racist attitudes in and around our sport.  This must change.

There was also discussion about barriers to participation.  There were a number of themes but the overarching issues are the lack of accessibility and representation in Ultimate.

In order to tackle these issues, the most immediate action arising from the forum is that we will be setting up a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) committee during August to help inform and lead on changes and projects. 

Alongside this step, as part of the UK & Ireland BLM fundraiser, we were asked if teams could donate to UKU to support improvement of diversity in ultimate in this country.  With that in mind, we have set up this donations fund to provide the DEI committee with a budget for some initial projects.
