This past month, the Center for Leadership in Athletics was visited by the Israeli Sports Diplomacy group, an impact-based Sports Diplomacy program sponsored by the State Department. The group visited various Seattle sports organizations to discuss issues of discrimination and racism and the role sports can play in bringing divided communities together.

The Center's Dr. Jennifer Hoffman was able to discuss the the role of a coach as an educator and how sport can be used as a vehicle for education.

The Israeli Sports Diplomacy group is affiliated with the United States' Sports Diplomacy program, International Visitor Leadership Program, and the World Affairs Council of Seattle.
