The 2016 Clean Sport Forum will also provide delegates the chance to contribute to roundtable discussions, enabling them to network and share best practice from colleagues in similar roles in other organisations.
UKAD Head of Education and Athlete Support, Amanda Hudson, said: “We are looking forward to hosting our sixth Clean Sport Forum. In order to maintain and deliver a robust anti-doping programme it is important that we actively engage with our partners to ensure that the sports and other organisations have the opportunity to be involved in shaping the future of clean sport in the UK.
“The voice of clean athletes is rightly becoming more prominent and we must work together to capture that voice and ensure it is at the heart of everything we do. The forum gives us all an opportunity to stop, reflect and consider how we improve our efforts to protect clean athletes and restore faith in clean sport.”
