Passion. Purpose. Power. Examine the Olympics from the lens of economics, media, education, and human rights. Join the conversation in the second episode of our 2-part Olympism webinar series.
Controversy often swirls around the Olympics as the Games confront commercialization, politicization, and commodification, sexism, racism, corruption, violence, and cheating. During this event hosted by Royal Roads University, we’ll explore the games from the realms of economics, media, education, and human rights.
Join Dr. Jennifer Walinga for the second session in the Olympics Feature which is part of our Sport, Leadership and Social Change webinar series. In this episode, we explore this year’s event after the conclusion of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
