IOC Launces Toolkit for Olympic Movement to Safeguard Athletes From Harassment and Abuse in Sport
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) took a further important step in the protection of athletes from harassment and abuse by launching a toolkit to assist International Sports Federations (IFs) and National Olympic Committees (NOCs) to develop and implement athlete-safeguarding policies and procedures. “This toolkit aims to provide solutions and guidance for sporting organisations based on experience and expertise from all over the world,” explained Sheldon Kennedy. “By following the steps in this toolkit, we hope that all sports organisations will implement policies and procedures which are effective, and have a true long-lasting positive impact on athlete wellbeing.” Respect Group is honoured to have played a key role in both the Athlete Training Video and the development of the online toolkit.
