Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

The QRL commitment is driven by the seven pillars of inclusion as established by ‘Play by the Rules’.

1. Access The QRL is committed to making rugby league accessible to all who wish to be part of the Rugby League community. This includes supporting the development of facilities to meet the needs of all individuals and communities, ensuring participants in all parts of the state have affordable and unrestricted access across all levels of participation.
2. Attitude QRL Policies are reflective of our attitude towards diversity and inclusion. Inclusiveness is a core belief of the QRL and our staff will lead the action across the state to become truly inclusive. We lift capacity and lead the change with our stakeholders by speaking openly and working collaboratively.
3. Choice The QRL is committed to making it easy for people to participate in rugby league. This includes a range of participation opportunities across playing, coaching, volunteering, officiating, administrating and consuming.
4. Partnerships The QRL is committed to partnering and collaborating with leading organisations to assist in achieving our diversity and inclusion goals. Our commitment to partners is to align our beliefs through open, honest and respectful behaviour.
5. Communications The QRL ensures our communication is reflective of the diversity across our community. We are committed to telling the good news stories from across the state to ensure we celebrate the successes and inclusive nature of our game.
6. Policy The QRL regularly review and update internal policy to reflect our progressive commitment to diversity and inclusion. Our focus on
‘Club Health’ will ensure our affiliates have clear direction and guidance in developing their policies to address issues with effective solutions.
7. Opportunities QRL acknowledges the impact rugby league has on our communities and the people within. We understand our responsibility to unite and invite more participants across all cross-sections
of our community, and that the opportunity to participate in our game is an important part of our state’s culture and identity.
