World Rugby set to review transgender policies in the sport

first_imgFriday Feb 21, 2020 World Rugby set to review transgender policies in the sport World Rugby chairperson Bill Beaumont has revealed the sport’s governing body will carry out a wide-ranging review of their policies relating to transgender players.ADVERTISEMENTKeen to establish clear guidelines on the controversial issue, World Rugby is consulting with experts and the global women’s game ahead of a London summit next week.The issue of trans women competing in women’s sport has become a thorny debate.World Rugby, the game’s governing body, said research suggests a reduction of testosterone does not lead to a proportionate reduction in strength and power and that it is important for contact sports to take into consideration player welfare.“There is growing recognition of the importance of autonomy of gender identity in society, and all sports are currently evaluating their policies to ensure that they are fit for purpose in the modern sporting and societal landscape,” Beaumont said.“Rugby is no different, and this forum makes it possible to explore the best available evidence and hear the relevant expert opinions.”Several high-profile female athletes including Martina Navratilova, Kelly Holmes and Paula Radcliffe have spoken out about the possible damage to women’s sport of allowing potentially more powerful trans women to compete.ADVERTISEMENTWorld Rugby is asking elite players for their views via a questionnaire.“We are committed to exploring the evidence from experts in the field of biology and medicine, together with insights provided by leading legal, ethical and social minds, to determine whether the current guidelines are appropriate for all participants,” Beaumont said.“Importantly, we are undertaking an extensive consultation process that includes obtaining the perspectives of players who will be directly affected by this policy in both elite and community rugby.”MEANWHILE: ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

REaD Group offers £25,000 Data Bursary

first_imgREaD Group offers £25,000 Data Bursary Tagged with: Individual giving Data management specialists The REaD Group is offering £25,000 worth of data cleansing, consultancy and associated services over a twelve month period to the UK charity that wins its new Data Bursary, offered in association with UK Fundraising.“No, hell hasn’t frozen over,” said The REaD Group’s CEO, Mark Roy, in launching the new Bursary. “But with charity direct mail complaints to the Fundraising Standards Board hitting an alarming high recently, we feel compelled to offer some REaD-powered database management assistance at this time.”Mr Roy has criticised charities’ apparent direct mail excesses in the past, so added: “We’re cognisant of the considerable financial and technical constraints faced by charity and volunteer organisations, so it’s time to stop hollering from the sidelines and muck in to help make life easier and more efficient for fundraisers, I’ve decided.”All UK registered charities are eligible to be considered for The REaD Group Charity Data Bursary, which will apply a suite of REaD Group products, including the Gone Away Suppression File (GAS), Xpression and The Bereavement Register (TBR), alongside the MPS and PAF-checking filters to the Bursary recipient’s database or mailing list, with the aim of eliminating inaccuracies, increasing ROI and decreasing adverse environmental impacts.Interested charities can apply online. Whilst priority will be given to charitable organisations that currently do not use any data cleansing and/or bureau services, all submissions will certainly be considered.The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday 18 July, 2008. Representatives from The REaD Group will select the successful Charity Data Bursary recipient in association with UK Fundraising, which will announce the successful applicant on 8 August 2008.Howard Lake, UK Fundraising’s publisher, said: “Accurate supporter data is an essential component of successful fundraising. The REaD Group’s Charity Data Bursary is therefore a valuable opportunity for one charity to ensure it can catch up with best practice and enjoy even greater direct mail fundraising success.”Mr Roy added: “We look forward to working with UK Fundraising and our inaugural Bursary recipient over coming months. Hopefully this can be the start of a robust and mutually rewarding new dialogue with our charity marketing colleagues.”www.readgroup.co.uk Howard Lake | 10 June 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  46 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

BP to cut 10,000 jobs this year as coronavirus accelerates streamlining effort

first_img BP’s earnings fell $1.6bn in the first quarter as a result of the pandemic (Credit: Flickr/Mike Mozart) BP will make almost 10,000 job cuts before the end of the year as part of a broad restructuring plan to lower costs amid the economic fallout of coronavirus.In an email to staff today (8 June), chief executive Bernard Looney – who took the top role back in February this year – warned the UK oil major is spending “much, much more” than it currently makes, and that the pandemic has accelerated existing plans to streamline the company.“It was always part of the plan to make BP a leaner, faster-moving and lower-carbon company,” he wrote, citing his inaugural strategy to transform the oil giant into a net-zero business by 2050.“While the external environment is driving us to move faster – and perhaps go deeper at this stage than we originally intended – the direction of travel remains the same.”The announcement comes as a three-month redundancy freeze across the business expires today. Pandemic has forced oil firms into cost-cutting modeThe destruction of oil demand triggered by coronavirus lockdown measures has dealt real damage to the industry this year, driving down commodity prices well below the range of profitability.And while demand is beginning to recover as lockdowns lift, and measures to cut production have eased the oversupply, benchmark oil prices remain around $40 per barrel – compared to $70 per barrel at the start of the year.BP is among a number of oil firms to have announced spending cutbacks amid this environment with a 25%, or $3bn, reduction in capital spending this year – and is planning to lower operating costs by $2.5bn in 2021.In the first quarter of the year, the oil major reported a $1.6bn drop in earnings compared to the previous year – a two-thirds contraction to $791m – while net debt rose by $6bn.But while the pandemic may have accelerated the decision to restructure, Professor David Elmes of Warwick Business School suggests the move is “symptomatic” of wider challenges facing the industry in the context of climate change and the energy transition.He said: “Coronavirus has reduced oil demand and the price per barrel has plummeted, but that has happened in a wider context of short-term and long-term decline.“Some industry forecasts had acknowledged a flattening off in long-term demand last year, before the pandemic began. All firms in the sector will be looking at how they can cut costs, shift their activities to the lowest-cost field, trim investment, and be thinking hard about what dividend they can pay.” The job cuts will largely be targeted at senior management roles, with CEO Bernard Looney pledging to ‘protect the front line’center_img Senior management roles at BP will be most affected by the job cutsThe majority of the job losses will be office-based roles, with senior management to “bear the biggest impacts” as the company – which employs around 70,000 people – targets a reduction of its group leadership by about a third.“We are protecting the front line of the company,” wrote Looney, who last month revealed more than half the number of “Tier 2” senior management jobs across the business would be phased out.He added: “These are tough decisions to make. But the impact – particularly on those leaving us – is much, much tougher. I understand this and I am sorry.“But we must do the right thing for BP and this is that right thing. It will help strengthen our finances. And it will help create a more competitive company for the majority who are staying.”A salary freeze introduced in April will be lifted in October, although senior management will not be eligible until March 2021 – and cash bonuses are “very unlikely” to be paid this year.last_img read more
