BADC Takes Over Switzerland with Attendance at Annual Symposiums
BADC’s Chairman of the Board, Dr. Christa Wells and Doping Control Manager, Mr. Audril Farquharson attend the annual iNADO and WADA Symposiums in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The theme of the 2023 iNADO Annual Workshop was “Women & Anti-Doping: Working Together Towards Excellence”. iNADO proudly chose to focus their 2023 Workshop on women in anti-doping because they feel supporting women helps everyone work together towards excellence in anti-doping. As said by iNADO, “Of iNADO’s 69 member NADOs and RADOs, 30 have women in a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) position or similar. This amounts to 43.5 percent, a higher average than in many other industries. However, this does not mean conditions in our community are favorable for gender equality.”
BADC’s attendance and representation at the annual WADA Symposium ensure we stay abreast of new procedures, network with our counterparts amongst other things. This year, “Under the theme ‘United toward a world of doping-free sport’ the Symposium will once again gather anti-doping practitioners from International Federations, National and Regional Anti-Doping Organizations and Major Event Organizations; as well as, Athletes, Governments, WADA-accredited laboratories, Athlete Passport Management Units, service providers, researchers, and the media – to help advance the global collaborative mission for doping-free sport. This year’s edition will explore how, together, we can further advance anti-doping for the benefit of athletes worldwide.”
We look forward to implementing all the new information we learned and building on existing and new relationships with our counterparts around the world.
