Craig Foster

Director

Overview

Craig Foster is a former Socceroo, broadcaster, Adjunct Professor of Sport and Social Responsibility and human rights advocate.

Following a celebrated football career as Australia's 419th Socceroo and 40th Captain, Craig has become one of Australia's most respected broadcasters with an 18-year, triple Logie winning career with Special Broadcasting Service (SBS) Australia.

Known for his moral courage in speaking out for minority and marginalised communities, he believes that it's time for sport, as a highly visible and influential social institution globally, to live its slogans and grand statements about changing the world to actively undertake the mission to do so including all forms of equality, by embedding internationally-recognised human rights into global sporting bodies.

Craig is an Adjunct Professor of Sport and Social Responsibility with Torrens University and he sits on the Multicultural Council of Australia. He also works across a vast range of social programs from Indigenous rights and self-determination, homelessness and domestic violence along with refugee advocacy as a Human Rights and Refugee Ambassador for Amnesty Australia, Australia Committee member with Human Rights Watch, and Advisory Council member of the Australian Human Rights Institute, UNSW.
