Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group
In early 2023, the World Curling Federation established a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Working Group (DEI).
The group has taken the first steps in developing a World Curling Federation Transgender Policy, within the IOC Framework on Fairness, Inclusion and Non-Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity and Sex Variations. Future actions of the group include initiating actions on gender balance activities recommended by the IOC Gender Equality and Inclusion Framework; raising awareness of what diversity, equity and inclusion means across the sport of curling and advising how DEI can be embedded into programmes and initiatives in curling.
The DEI Working Group consists of the following members:
Chair: Helena Lingham (Sweden – Board member)
Kim Forge (Australia – Board member)
Emily Dwyer (Canada – Staff)
Roselle Gonsalves (Canada)
Terri Johnston (Japan)
Li Yawen (China)
Eoin McCrossan (Ireland)
P.N. Raju (India)
