Inclusive Sports Initiative

The Inclusive Sports Initiative is a project of the Institute for Human Centered Design and focuses on Disability in Sport, changing the paradigm, bringing people with disabilities from the margins to become integral members of the sporting community. 

The Inclusive Sports Initiative addresses sport for all and the inclusion of all individuals and groups in sport, advancing inclusion through the lens of universal design. Ongoing research, education and advocacy addresses inclusion, universal design and sport for all. The Initiative is also active in the international sport for development and human rights space, promoting the power of sport in communities around the world. 

The Inclusive Sports Initiative provides educational awareness training on inclusion in sport, and serves as a resource to support sport organizations regarding the inclusion process. The Inclusive Sports Initiative serves as a facilitator to organize individuals and groups to work together to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities and the inclusion of marginalized individuals and groups in sport.
