The document presents suggestions divided into different sections including:

  • Transparent Guidelines and Expectations.
  • EDI Training and Encourage Reflexivity.
  • Inclusion of Multiple Voices in Processes and Outputs.

  • European Federation of Sport Psychology.
  • International Federation of Adapted Physical Activity.
  • North American Society for the Psychology of Sport and Physical Activity.
