“Stay in the Game” is a one-day virtual conference aimed at promoting the continued involvement of women in sport beyond graduation in a variety of roles.

The conference features Keynote Speaker Jayna Hefford, a multi-time women’s hockey medal winner at the Winter Olympics and IIHF World Women’s Championships as well as two panels of women who continue to be involved in sport locally, nationally and internationally as coaches, board members, advocates, administrators, journalists, entrepreneurs and officials.

These role models for women in sport will share insight to why they chose this path, and the benefits and challenges of remaining involved in sport, through their personal experiences and stories.

Breakout sessions will cover a range of topics pertaining to women working, volunteering, and continuing to compete in sport, including: athlete identity and transitioning to a different role, work-life balance, building confidence, dealing with conflict, mental health and self-care, leadership, women on sport boards, sport advocacy, sport entrepreneurship and professional development.

The conference will give young women and their mentors an opportunity to explore further the many ways they can continue to be involved in the sport world.
