Fight against discrimination in sport in Grenoble

Each year, conferences will be organized by the City of Grenoble on social topics having strong impacts on populations. For this first year, the theme is the sporting world, with a cycle of four conferences on discrimination and inequalities in the field.

A focus on the fight against violence in sport

Grenoble has recently taken necessary measures to combat sexist and sexual violence in sport. This initiative stems from a bold policy vision to promote equality and create an inclusive sporting environment. At the heart of this approach is a series of practical measures. For example, by requiring that sports associations undergo training on gender-based and sexual violence to benefit from municipal subsidies. Continuing the deployment of this plan and the actions carried out by the “equal rights” mission, the City has chosen sport for the theme of its first cycle of conferences, which resonates in the context of the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

A co-construction with the world of sport

In Grenoble, measures are taken for and with the sports community. By actively involving sports clubs and the general public, Grenoble creates a space where open discussions on these issues are encouraged. This promotes a sporting environment where everyone feels respected, regardless of their origin, gender or situation. Throughout the month of May, conferences are open to all in order to raise awareness and denounce four criteria of discrimination which are:

  • racism,
  • LGBTQIA+ phobias
  • gender-based and sexual violence
  • disability/validism
