Respect for Diversity

The Geelong Football Club is a welcoming place where we seek to engage respectfully with people with diverse experiences and backgrounds. We believe that this will deepen our understanding and appreciation of others, motivate us to embrace our differences and make us richer for the experience. As a result our Club will strengthen and grow.
