S3:E9 Beyond the pitch, crafting a game for all, Shruti Saujani with Priya and Advita

“I want sport to be more reflective of the world that we live in. So that is representation from a diversity point of view. But also, treating people as a whole. A person is not just a person of color. There’s so many other characteristics and lived experiences that an individual brings. So it’s about accepting a person as a whole, and really creating that belonging for them to be whoever they want in whichever sport they play. And hoping that we do reflect the society that we live in, and serve.”

In the final episode of Amplifying Diverse Voices season 3, Advita Patel and Priya Bates, Co-founders of A Leader Like Me, were delighted to be joined by Shruti Saujani from the Football Association where she’s the EDI lead Equity Diversity and Inclusion.
