Sport is a shared language. The elements of sport that we love are universal: striving, belonging, triumphing and reaching greatness or getting back up again after failing.

Rana Hussain is a Diversity and Inclusion leader making important inroads into Australian sporting culture and the community at large. One of a handful of women of colour working in sports administration, Rana is a pioneer and a passionate advocate for social inclusion and reducing discrimination through the vehicle of sports and media. She held the role of the Diversity & Inclusion manager at Cricket Australia, before accepting a position at the Champions of Change as Program Director of the Sports Coalition in 2022.

Rana’s desire to see more diversity in both media and sport sees her writing and broadcasting for various outlets including several years with the ABC. Rana is a Board Member of the Victorian Women’s Trust and sits on the Collingwood Football Club Anti-Racism expert group. She is also a consultant on the DoMore project and for the Ben Simmons Family Foundation.
