Today, Athlete Ally announced a formal e-learning partnership with Game Plan. Game Plan is an online learning, mentorship and career services platform that helps athletics organizations deliver comprehensive athlete development programs to support athletes and enhance their brand.
Athlete Ally and Game Plan will be collaborating on offering LGBTQ inclusion and allyship education to college athletes through the Game Plan platform. The courses will be available for colleges starting this Fall through the Game Plan platform.
“E-learning is critical to reaching student athletes with information, tools and resources to support LGBTQ teammates and fans,” said Hudson Taylor, Executive Director of Athlete Ally. “We look forward to working with Game Plan to ensuring as many athletes as possible have access to the educational tools they need.”
“The work that Athlete Ally is doing to promote LGBTQ inclusion and respect in athletics is so important,” said Vin McCaffrey, Founder and CEO of Game Plan. “We were fortunate enough to work with them on a project with the NBA G League — and we’re excited to now partner together in a similar way to promote allyship and inclusion in athletics on college campuses.”
