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.

Reconciliation Action Plan

As part of the RACE pillar in the Respect for Diversity Policy the Geelong Cats have been recently endorsed by Reconciliation Australia on our inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan. The primary goal of Reconciliation is to deepen the understanding of Aboriginal culture and history for non Aboriginal Australians with a focus on Respect, Relationships and Opportunities. The Geelong Cats has several programs and partnerships that are focussed to work within the Aboriginal Communities of the Barwon South West region, Victoria and Australia.

An open letter about Australian marriage equality

We understand that there is a possibility of a future conscience vote on the topic of Marriage Equality in parliament and the Club has been contacted to support the current awareness raising campaign.  Respect is a core value of the Geelong Cats and as a concept is nurtured.  We respect diversity and say “no to discrimination” of any kind.
