Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scorecards

About the USOPC's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scorecards

As the steward of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic movements, the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee recognizes the need to achieve increased diversity. We recognize our continued success depends on ensuring the inclusion of all Americans. The intent of the USOPC’s diversity, equity and inclusion work and DE&I Scorecards is to increase performance and ensure long-term support for National Governing Bodies, High Performance Management Organizations and Team USA athletes. 

In order to achieve these goals, diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives are included in the USOPC’s strategic operating plan. Goals and objectives within the plan are established with measurable outcomes and deadlines for completion.

Throughout the last decade, U.S. demographics have become more racially and ethnically diverse and the USOPC embraces this change. The USOPC DE&I Scorecard is one of the ways the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic family has committed to meeting its goal of reflecting the nation’s growing diversity.

The scorecard is designed for the USOPC, NGBs and HPMOs to easily identify opportunities to become more diverse and inclusive as it relates to athletes, coaches, staff, board of directors and membership. It will assist in creating diversity plans and identifying the best use of resources for DE&I success. The scorecard also allows for comparison of NGBs and HPMOs in a manner that respects the uniqueness of each sport and their resources.

USOPC Commitment To Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

As the steward of the Olympic and Paralympic movements in the United States, the USOPC is committed to empowering Team USA athletes to achieve sustained competitive excellence and well-being. To fulfill this mission, the USOPC recognizes the need to prioritize diversity in everyday operations, and maintain an inclusive and equitable culture that represents all U.S citizens.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Is In Our DNA

The USOPC was reorganized by the Ted Stevens Olympic and Amateur Sports Act, originally enacted in 1978. Pursuant to Section 220511 of the act, the USOPC is required to submit a report to Congress every quadrennium detailing its operations for the preceding four years. This report must include information regarding the participation of women, people with disabilities and racial/ethnic minorities in NGB athletic, governance and management activities. The report must also include descriptions of programs and initiatives that encourage the participation of women, people with disabilities and racial/ethnic minorities within each NGB and HPMO.

Additionally, by signing the Performance Partnership Agreement, each NGB and HPMO is required to submit its diversity data annually.
