Focusing Your Gender LENS – August Newsletter
The future of sport is gender equitable. We’ve seen the research – when girls and young women benefit from quality sport opportunities, it carries them forward in their lives and careers, bringing more diverse perspectives to the leadership table. And when women and girls are making decisions, sport is more likely to represent their perspectives and meet their needs, keeping them engaged longer. It’s a circle we need to keep supporting.
But if we’re going to feed that circle, we need to keep having the tough conversations about the places we’re falling short. As leaders, it’s crucial that we increase our comfort in addressing inequity directly, seeking new perspectives, and implementing effective solutions. That’s why we’re so excited to launch our new e-module: Gender Equity LENS.
This e-learning module will help sport leaders learn how to ask the right questions and challenge assumptions that keep equity out of reach.
We’re hiring!There are still 3 days to apply for our new position: Senior Manager, Data & Technology Operations. Learn more about the role.
