LGBT: Diversity and Inclusion
United Soccer Coaches Promotes LGBT Diversity and Inclusion
New Instructional Online Course Helps Educate Coaches on LGBT Diversity and Inclusion
“Camaraderie, compassion, and collaboration are key to a successful team in any sport. We want to help encourage the most respectful, inclusive environments possible across all of soccer.” –Lynn Berling-Manuel, Chief Executive Officer at United Soccer Coaches
United Soccer Coaches is offering an interactive online mini-course developed to help educate coaches about the inclusion and support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender athletes. The 10-minute course titled ‘LGBT: Diversity and Inclusion’ is available now as a free public service including a United Soccer Coaches Diploma upon completion.
Our LGBT and Allies Member Community developed the course in partnership with Athlete Ally, a national nonprofit organization that provides public awareness campaigns, educational programming and other resources to foster inclusive sports communities.
LGBT Diversity and Inclusion participants will:
- Gain an overview of what LGBT means
- Learn about working with LGBT players and colleagues
- Know how to become an ally with the LGBT community
- Be able to lead by example
