We are delighted to invite you to a two part webinar (in English) brought to you by Safe Sport International and the Safeguarding Unit at London law firm Farrer & Co.


On the 7th July between 3.00pm ­ 4.00pm BST (GMT+1), we will explore how academic research can inform good safeguarding practice.

Professor Emerita Kari Fasting will first discuss ‘what we know about non­accidental violence in sport’, Prof Bettina Rulofs will share her recent research on German athletes’ experiences and their designated sexual violence commissioner roles, and Adele Eastman will present the Safeguarding Unit’s ground breaking guidance on the importance of sharing low level concerns. Rachel Nolloth will chair the discussion and pose audience questions to our three panel members.

On the 14th July between 3.00pm ­ 4.00pm BST (GMT+1), we will discuss what safeguarding lessons we can learn from the Larry Nassar case.

Maria Strauss and Katie Fudakowski from Farrer & Co will present the case study and identify the key failings in governance arising from the case. Also in this webinar, Anne Tiivas OBE ­ Chair of Safe Sport International will present on practical tips for safeguarding at board level.

These two webinars are aimed at board members of national and international sports federations and executive teams and will be a valuable opportunity to hear from safeguarding professionals and lawyers on why safeguarding must be at the top of every Boards’ agenda. There will be an opportunity to comment and ask questions at both webinars. If you would like to email any questions in advance, please email them to Katrina Long. You can view the speaker biographies here.
