PacificSport Fraser Valley is offering monthly Lunch & Learns to bring together women in the sport and physical activity sector (and beyond) who are looking to advance their leadership skills, meet other like-minded women and learn from guest presenters on a range of important topics. Through interactive sessions, participants will hear from women in leadership roles on topics such as Social Justice & Anti-Racism, Diversity & Inclusion, Fundraising & Sponsorship, Accessible Sport, Mentorship & Career Progression, & Mental Health. Women who are aspiring to be leaders in their fields and women who are already established leaders are invited to join together and share their stories and experiences in a safe and inclusive environment, leaving each session feeling empowered, included, and knowledgeable on a topic they may not have considered before.
*These events will be held virtually through Zoom for the foreseeable future. You must register for each event separately. We’ll see you on Zoom!
