Welcome to the online home of the First Annual Sport For Social Change Conference presented by the Drexel Sport Management Student Union (SMTSU). The event will be held on Friday October 25th, 2013 on the campus of Drexel University. Specific location and times on Drexel's campus are still to be determined.
The Sport For Social Change Conference will be FREE to all that attend!
The goal of the Sport For Social Change Conference is simple: how can we help move society in a positive direction via sport? Many times, social issues work their way into the sports conversation and vice versa. Although some may shy away from tackling these issues, the Sport For Social Change Conference looks to go head-on with the issues. The Sport For Social Change Conference will be heavy on brainstorming and idea creation, giving the opportunity to students to dive straight into the industry's intellectual conversation.
Topics that will be discussed:
- Sport and Politics
- Sport for Handicapped/Disabled
- Sport for Youth Development
- LGBT Issues in Sport
- Sport Facility Sustainability and Welfare
- Athletes as Role Models
Volunteers leading up to the event and on event day will be needed. If interested, email the Drexel SMTSU directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for updates on speakers, schedules, locations, and giveaways for the Sport For Social Change Conference!
