About The Series

Canadian Women & Sport and She’s4Sports are collaborating again on a new series, We Are Sport: Conversations with leaders from the BIPOC sport community. The initiative from Ainka Jess, founder of She’s4Sports, will address race, inclusion, LGBTQI2S+ advocacy, leadership, and mental health, highlighting the perspectives of sport leaders who identify as Black, Indigenous, and people of colour.

The We Are Sport series features interviews and panel discussions hosted on Wednesdays (July to September) on Instagram Live and Zoom.

We are grateful for the support of Sport Canada in funding this project.
