EPL working on diversity
The Premier League has agreed a three-year partnership with Britain’s leading charity for LGBT issues to help promote equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender fans, officials, players and staff. The Premier League will now join Stonewall’s global diversity champions programme, which works to improve diversity and equality in the UK and abroad, said executive chairman Richard Scudamore. The league will also up efforts to tackle homophobic abuse, whether in stadiums or online, and will focus on improving its reporting and training staff at clubs to better address homophobia.
