About the Women's Sports Foundation (www.womenssportsfoundation.org)

Project to Eliminate Homophobia Workshop (www.homophobiainsports.com)

The Project to Eliminate Homophobia in Sport is a collaborative effort involving seven leading national organizations and is designed to create an educated public that respects all athletes and sports-affiliated personnel regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expressions. The Project has four main goals:

EDUCATION: Educate athletes, their parents, guardians, coaches, administrators and the public, plus other key influencers about the origins and effects of homophobia in sport and the relationship of homophobia to sexism and gender oppression.

RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT AND DISTRIBUTION: Cultivate and develop diversified resources to ensure the effectiveness, durability and strength of the Project to Eliminate Homophobia in Sport.

ADVOCACY: Advocate for fair policy guidelines on teams, at events and within the workplace for lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender (LGBT) sport professionals, athletes and fans in sport.

RECOGNITION: To publicly recognize the athletic achievements and professional successes of openly LGBT sports participants, thereby providing healthy role models.

The Workshop

It Takes A Team! Training for Presenters

In this training, we plan to show our recently produced video, "It Takes A Team! Making

Sports Safe for Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender Athletes and Coaches" and its accompanying Education Kit. The Project to Eliminate Homophobia in Sports is in the process of promoting and distributing "It Takes A Team! to high schools and colleges nationwide. We will talk about how "It Takes A Team!" is being recieved by audiences all around the country. We'll have the producers and writers of the video and Education Kit provide a training on how to present the kit to a variety of audiences including athletes, coaches, athletic directors, teachers, administrators, and parent/guardians.

At the Sports & Company Exposition, the Project will have a booth where there will be FREE Informational Posters, Colorful "Safe Space" Stickers, as well as complete Education Kits to purchase. Order forms for the recently produced Education Kit on DVD will also be available.
