Over the past three years, we have witnessed several government initiatives pertaining to girls and women in sport:
- Women and Girls in Sport: Report of the Standing Committee of Canadian Heritage (2017).
- FPTSC Working Group on Women and Girls in Sport: Report of Recommendations (2018)
- Report of the Women and Sport Working Committee of Federal Sports Minister, Kirsty Duncan (2018)
All of these initiatives had a mandate to make recommendations for achieving gender equity in the Canadian sport system. We now have a long list of recommendations focused on changing the sport system. The next challenge (and the key to success) is to help the sport community implement these recommendations.
That’s where Conversation 2021 comes in: bridging the gap between recommendations and actions.
