Banner saying Level The Field Inspiring Change Workshops

As part of viaSport’s #LevelTheField Gender Equity campaign, six regional Inspiring Change Workshops will be held between February 20 and April 19, 2016 to engage sport, recreation, and community leaders and advocates across the province on issues surrounding gender equity in sport.

Each workshop features a Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) Women in Leadership Workshop and an opportunity to network with local participants on gender equity, audit tools, and policy templates. 

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to apply for a $1,000 grant to support a gender equity initiative in their region. 

Recommended age to participate: 18+ years
Credit: Certified NCCP coaches will receive professional development credits 
Registration deadline: Three days prior to workshop date or when maximum numbers are achieved

Visit the CAAWS Women and Leadership page to learn more about their workshops. Influencing Change will be hosted in Kamloops, Victoria, Rossland, and Whistler. Effective Communication will be hosted in Dawson Creek at a reduced cost.
