BIPOC women and girls experience sport in unique ways.

Canadian Women & Sport has partnered with E-Alliance to seek existing evidence to understand the lived experiences of Canadian women and girls from Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities’ barriers to sport participation.

We know that COVID-19 had a major impact on sport participation to the entire Canadian sport system. However, the experiences faced by the BIPOC community in sport are unique. If we don’t acknowledge those barriers, then we risk leaving BIPOC women and girls behind when sport returns.

Attendees will learn of the findings of this project from lead researchers:

  • Janelle Joseph, Assistant Professor, Critical Studies of Race & Indigeneity at the University of Toronto
  • Lynn Lavallée, Strategic Lead, Indigenous Resurgence, Faculty of Community Services and Professor, School of Social Work at Ryerson University

Attendees will also hear from two sport organizations on their experiences as coaches/programmers on how to best serve and support BIPOC women and girls in sport.

Audience members will have the opportunity to pose questions at the end of the panel discussion.

Register by June 7th to reserve your spot. This event will include live French translation and will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
