In 2019, we created Beyond Sport House, a multi-day immersive experience where leaders across sport, business, social change, academia and development gathered in New York to drive social change through sport to reach individual and Global Goals. This October and November, we are thrilled to bring it back with a three-part virtual twist. Across five, one to two hour impact-focused sessions, you'll be able to experience real change through sport, from home.
Aligned with the upcoming Beyond Sport Global Awards campaign, Beyond Sport House From Home will tackle current societal and industry issues with a diverse range of speakers and formats while also providing the chance to interact, engage and connect.
Sessions will cover the current state of the sport industry and how it's impacting cause and community, plus the potential for collective impact in our sector. We'll take a deep dive into sport's role in issues including reducing racial and social inequality, ensuring equal access to decent work and economic growth, advancing peace and social justice and making progress on gender equality. There will also be special sessions exclusively for teams and leagues throughout the series.
We are streamlining content into a tight three-part series spread out across two months to proactively mitigate screen fatigue and to ensure that every session is relevant and forward-thinking. Using the people-centric HopIn platform from Beyond Sport Workshop Week, main stage and breakout workshops will stream live and also be available to pass holders the next day. And to continue to bring our community together, attendees can also network or design their own sessions with fellow attendees.
