It’s 2017! Persisting Gaps and New Opportunities to Actively Engage Girls and Young Women
It may be 2017, but the struggle to achieve gender equity in sport and physical activity continues. During this 1 hour webinar, Sydney Millar will reflect on persisting gaps and barriers that are slowing change, and share new opportunities and inspiring resources participants can use to kick start action to engage more girls and young women in their communities.

Whether you’re a teacher, health promoter, program leader, policy maker, coach or parent, this webinar will help renew your commitment to girls and young women.
By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Recognize barriers that are limiting the active engagement of girls and young women in sport and physical activity.
- Identify opportunities to enhance the experiences of girls and young women.
- Commit to taking action at the individual and/or organizational level to support the active engagement of girls and young women.
- Tap into available resources and expertise, such as that available from the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS).
