We need our sport to represent the diversity of the United States.

Rocky Harris, CEO USA Triathlon

 

 

USA Triathlon and the USA Triathlon Foundation are dedicated to combating racism and championing social justice in the multisport community and throughout the endurance sports industry.

 

Both organizations are committed to taking immediate and long-term action to encourage a culture of equality in the sport, build a future for the sport that all people can see themselves being a part of, break through barriers of entry to the sport for underserved and underrepresented individuals and communities, and take responsibility for empowering, exposing, educating and engaging the multisport community to drive actionable change in their respective local communities.

 

What does Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access mean? 

Diversity – USA Triathlon is striving to create a community reflective of the diversity of the United States. Areas of focus include gender, ethnic, racial, body, age, and socioeconomic diversity.

Equity – USA Triathlon is committed to ensuring fair treatment and equal access within the multisport community for both athletes and industry professionals.

Inclusion – USA Triathlon is committed to fostering a community that is welcoming to all individuals.  Triathlon is a sport for everyone and we want to ensure that every athlete feels welcome in all areas of the sport.

Access – USA Triathlon is dedicated to breaking down barriers of entry and increasing the availability and presence of triathlon in all communities. 

 

If you don’t have people around you who create the culture, it’s out of sight, out of mind.
