Club Industry has committed to a content series on diversity, equity and inclusion in collaboration with BLAQUE, which will highlight fitness industry voices from people of color.
The first post, 4 Ways the Fitness Industry Can Engage in True Allyship, by T’Nisha Symone, feels like essential reading and a great place to start. Do I consider myself an “ally”…? Absolutely. Do I practice true allyship? Probably not nearly as much as I want to believe. I’m looking forward to this series.
Important Data Point:
The latest data from the US Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System found that Hispanics and Non-Hispanic Blacks had a “significantly higher prevalence of inactivity than non-Hispanic whites.”
