Gender and sexuality in sport management: A queer tale

About Professor Sally Shaw's research

Sally’s research examines diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and she is a leader in the development of qualitative research methods and methodology in sport management.

Her research career began with a focus on gender relations. More recently, she has conducted research with and for lesbian, bisexual, gay, takatāpui, queer, and ally (LGBTQ+) communities in a variety of sport organisations. This includes research on the experiences of LGBTQ+ women and non-binary people at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Her research demonstrates that DEI needs good governance, and good governance promotes DEI, benefitting all sport communities.

She researches collaboratively with local, regional, and national sport organisations, influencing policy development and implementation.

Sally has written numerous academic articles for leading journals, research-informed reports for sport and funding organisations, and provides media commentary on gender and sexuality in sport. Sally holds multiple Research Fellow positions in the USA and South Africa.

This lecture will be followed with light refreshments, tea, coffee and juice.
