The Compete Sports Diversity Leadership Council (SDLC) is pleased to announce that the City of Austin, Texas has officially joined the Council as a non-member partner. It is the first city to officially support the SDLC in its dedication to training tomorrow’s sports leaders today.

Individuals as well as organizations and municipalities that complete the SDLC’s designation program and agree to abide by its strict continuing education requirement are awarded the Sports Diversity Leader (SDL) designation, indicating to others they have completed the curriculum that includes training, mentoring and volunteering elements.

Individuals may complete the designation program courses online or in person at one of our conferences or a combination of both. Our next conference is being held November 9th in Kansas City, Missouri. Organizations and municipalities may begin the program online at the conference and finish it by completing a review process.

The SDLC’s current advisory board includes CEO, Eric Carlyle; board president, Jared Garduno; education director, Connie Wardman and board member-at-large, Catherine Kelly. Additional advisory board members will be announced soon. For more information please visit
