Webinar: Leading the Way for LGBTQ Inclusion – June 15th

This free webinar: Leading the Way for LGBTQ Inclusion is for everyone—but especially for coaches and sport administrators—to learn best practices and tips to make sport more welcoming to LGBTQ athletes and coaches.

Join us on Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm EST for a webinar led by Jennifer Birch-Jones, the CAAWS Program Lead on LGBTQ Sport Inclusion. The webinar will focus on what steps sport organizations can take to ensure their sport is welcoming to sexual and gender diverse minorities. It will also allow time for participants’ questions and discussion.

This presentation is based on CAAWS’s ground-breaking and newly updated resource – Leading the Way: Working with LGBTQ Athletes and Coaches – and is a practical resource for coaches to create welcoming, inclusive environments. This second edition of Leading the Way now includes the Canadian results of the international Out on the Fields Study on Homophobia in Sport (2015), and reflects the recent guidance to sport organizations on creating inclusive environments for trans identities released by the CCES.
