Developing Inclusive Leaders in Canada
Return On Inclusion™ (ROI) is a sport-specific diversity, inclusion and belonging education platform dedicated to developing inclusive leaders. The self-paced learning modules and group discussions provide sport administrators and coaches with the opportunity to develop the skills necessary to support student-athletes, create healthy team cultures, and implement sustainable inclusion strategies and practices.
Eliminating Barriers to Inclusion
Each module covers inclusion priorities determined by sport administrators and coaches to be the areas of greatest developmental need. ROI Founder and Course Instructor, Nevin Caple, will journey with you to help simplify complex concepts while you learn, grow and thrive as an inclusive leader. Upon successful completion of the Return On Inclusion™ Inclusive Leader Bundle, you will earn the ROI Inclusive Leader Certificate.

I have been through many DEI trainings both in person and virtually, but none have felt as disruptive as ROI. My favorite part of the trainings are the videos where I felt as though Nevin was talking directly to me. I also loved how athletic specific the trainings were and the case studies that forced me to think about my actions and my part in moving the needle. So much of what I learned from ROI and shared with my NACDA cohort I will carry with me to better inform my decision making and to impact change on my campus.
The most impactful part of the ROI program was that it guided self assessment while simultaneously building knowledge on how to become a more inclusive leader. Through a measured and compassionate approach, the interactive sessions provided confidence to engaged participants that embraced this critical work. ROI is enlightening personally and professionally.
Now more than ever, coaches and athletes are craving the knowledge and tools to create more inclusive spaces on their teams and I believe the work Nevin is doing is holistic, practical, and transferable to all levels of the game. We want to provide members with the best forms of education and career development, that's where ROI comes in. Having access to the ROI Inclusive Leader training will help United Soccer Coaches members foster spaces that make room on their teams for inclusive excellence, not as add-on but as the DNA of their culture.
