Statement of Intent: Increasing Diversity and Inclusion

Statement of Intent: Increasing Diversity and Inclusion

As the National Governing Body for the sport of Rugby League, we exist to govern, protect and promote the sport.

We recognise that the best ideas for Rugby League can come from anyone and that diversity in teams, and within organisations is proven to contribute to enhanced performance and commercial success.

We aim to encourage and support diversity and inclusion in all we do as an employer and a partner organisation.

We want to ensure that we are supporting the best ideas and the most talented innovators within sport. The Rugby Football League is a mature, values-led organisation and now is the right time to formalise the principles of diversity and inclusion by which we will strive to work and to examine where there are further opportunities for us to improve working practices, both internal and external, to fully reflect our aims and values.
