Gosper, Fuller to lead integrity conference
The Sport Australia Hall of Fame and Victoria University are holding the second Integrity in Sport Forum in Melbourne on May 9.
It will tackle the issues of integrity and governance with a stellar panel of national and international experts, led by Australia’s experienced sports administrator Kevan Gosper (pictured).
A member of the 2015 FIFA Independent Reform Committee and the IAAF Ethics Commission, Gosper will be joined by Jaimie Fuller, global chairman of SKINS International and crusader on issues of sports integrity, governance and ethics.
Other speakers include Australian Sports commission chairman John Wylie and investigative reporter and Walkley award winner Caro Meldrum-Hanna who lifted the lid on serious breaches of integrity and governance in the greyhound racing industry.
The forum will bring together more than 200 of Australia’s sports and community leaders to examine issues of integrity and ethics and their effect on elite and grassroots sport in Australia.
Global sports such as athletics, tennis and football, and domestic sports and codes such as AFL, NRL and racing are all under an increased spotlight, with problems far reaching, and the impacts significant, according to Sport Australia Hall of Fame chairman John Bertrand.
