Invitation to the third session of the 2021 ITA Educational Webinar Series tailored to the needs of athletes and athlete support personnel. All webinars will now have simultaneous translation in Arabic, French, Spanish and Russian.
This month we will take a deep dive into the reporting of doping in sport. While whistleblowing is effective for exposing doping, little is known or understood about the actual whistleblowing process. Speaking up is a complex series of steps and decisions that may lead to career- and life-altering implications for whistleblowers. To this day, majority athletes feel like they have to choose between their careers and telling the truth. During this session, we will hear from a whistleblower who will share his personal experience, discuss some of the main barriers and challenges of speaking up and look at the solutions that currently exist – and consider what more can be done in the future.
