To achieve gender equity in sport, we need individual athletes, coaches, administrators, and leaders to come together and envision a better future. We also need connections between women, men, and people of diverse gender identities.  How do we build these connections? As individuals, how can we influence change and empower others to do the same? What does it mean to use your power to build a more equitable world?

To help us start to answer these questions, we’ll hear from three leaders in sport, equity, and social change:

Karen O’Neill, CEO of the Canadian Paralympic Committee

Debbie Owusu-Akyeeah, feminist advocate, policy analyst, and President of Harmony House women’s shelter

Sally Dimachki, Manager of Programs and Community Engagement at Refugee 613 and Chair of the G(irls) 20 Summit Steering Committee

Moderated by Maya McDonald, facilitator and community educator.


11:30 AM – Registration opens. Guests should aim to arrive before 12.

11:30-12:00 PM – Lunch and networking

12:00 PM – Introduction from CAAWS and Sport Canada

12:30 – 1:30 PM – Panel discussion

1:30 – 2:00 PM – Participants will come together to discuss how they feel they can influence change. As a group we’ll build a collaborative vision for equitable sport to help guide our work when we leave the room.
