The fourth edition of the FIFA Conference for Equality and Inclusion aims to advocate the role of sport – and football in particular – as a true equaliser, a tool for inclusion and an avenue for opportunities and positive change.

Under the heading Pass it on – Hope through football, the conference explored:

  • how equal opportunities in sport can achieve real societal change;

  • how sport can be used to facilitate integration into society; and

  • sport's ability to empower people.

The keynote speech was given by Elhadj As Sy, Secretary General of International Federation of Red Cross (IFRC).

The conference is available to watch on Facebook and YouTube, and is divided into three sessions and a keynote conversation.

  • Session I: Stories from the field: equal opportunities in sports

  • Session II: Restoring humanity: integration through sports

  • Session III: Calling for action: empowering through sports

Watch sessions I and II here and watch session III here.

The keynote conversation featured the participation of Frederic Kanoute, the France-born former Malian international, and Jean Sseninde, a current professional women's football player hailing from Uganda. The event was moderated by Fox Sports journalist and presenter Kate Abdo.
