Building the Future of Sport, Together
Canadian Women & Sport is proud to present Building the Future of Sport, Together, our Impact Report for 2019 -2020.
At Canadian Women & Sport, we build better sport through gender equity. We support sport leaders and organizations to champion girls and women at every turn. We know that a more equitable sport system creates the conditions for girls and women to thrive and lead everywhere. In this report, we share why this effort is so important and what we’ve been working on over the last year to make gender equity a reality.
So far 2020 has been challenging and illuminating. The COVID-19 pandemic represents catastrophic loss, but particularly for women, racialized people, and low-income communities. Black Lives Matter protests across the world are calling attention to systemic anti-black racism in policing and beyond. We must remain humble and diligent in our pursuit of equity and commit to carrying forward the energy from this moment.
With the support of our partners, we’re continuing to inspire innovative work and build a better sport system for everyone. Our collective journey towards gender equity requires exceptional teamwork, dedication, and vision – and we’re not there yet. There’s a place for everyone in designing the future of sport.
