Presented by The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre and Australian Refugee Association (ARA)

This event will be opened by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia.

Is sport really the great leveller? On the surface the same rules apply to all participants, uniting people from every age, race and cultural background. But sports participation rates for refugee and CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse) groups are significantly lower than the general population.  What unwritten rules and unacknowledged barriers do CALD groups face and how can they be overcome?

A premier Refugee Week event, this conversation will shed light on these important questions. 

Panellists include:

  • Bruce Djite - a former Australian Association Football (soccer) player and currently the Director of Football at Adelaide United
  • Anyier Yuol - Founder & CEO Miss Sahara & Anyier Model Management
  • Mohamed Toure - Adelaide United player who made his professional debut at 15 years old.
  • Nader Ibrahim - Co-founder of One Culture Football a local organisation engaging with young people from newly arrived or migrant backgrounds
  • Halima Alizadah - Current surf life saver at West Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
