Stand Up Events (www.standupevents.com.au
) is a NFP dedicated to fighting sexual and gender discrimination in sport, and in life.
They recently conducted world first research with Monash University with 3 hand picked AFL Ambassadors in Jordan Roughead (Collingwood FC), Jayden Hunt (Melbourne FC) and Tom Campbell (North Melbourne FC). The goal of the research and their programs was/is to eradicate homophobic language and behaviour from sporting cultures. Their programs were deemed highly successful by Monash University.
On top of this research, they work with many organisations and companies, raising awareness of the detrimental impact that bigotry can have on communities and environments, whilst giving tangible skills on how to make the world a better place through our language and actions.
Every single person deserves to feel welcomed, safe and embraced, in every area of life – regardless of their sexuality and/or gender.
