(ATR) Before the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games come to a close, leaders of the International Paralympic Committee along with World Academy of Sport will host an Inclusion Summit.
The event will take place from Sept. 15-16 in Rio de Janeiro as part of the IPC Academy Campus and seeks to provide a forum to discuss inclusion and accessibility in the Olympic Movement and how these issues impact society.
Those wishing to attend the summit can register at the early bird discount of $1,000 before July 15 when the price rises to $1,100.
Speakers at the summit include IPC President Philip Craven, Brazil National Paralympic Committee president Andrew Parsons and Canadian Minister of Sport and Persons with Disabilities Carla Qualtrough. Rio Mayor Eduardo Paes, Rio 2016 chief Carlos Nuzman and PyeongChang 2018 secretary general Kihong Kim will also share their expertise during the summit.
The two-day summit is divided into three sections: understanding inclusion, inclusive leadership and delivering inclusion.
