    Active Lives
    Panel | Paewhiri Kōrero - Gender Identity
    This panel will be in Hunua 1 and live-streamed on the virtual platform.

    Explore varying perspectives on the inclusion of transgender athletes, athletes with Disorder of Sex Development (DSD) and non-binary athletes in community and elite sports.

    This panel will explore diverse and sometimes disparate views on these topics. Whilst the opinions of some panellists may not match the inclusionary position IWG itself holds, we believe these discussions need to take place to ensure fair and equitable solutions for all. We therefore ask that all panellists and participants are treated with respect and consideration with a view to creating a collegial, respectful, inclusive, and professional environment at IWG 2022, both in person and virtually.
