1. CAAWS at a glance

Shelley Callaghan (CAAWS) and Kathy Brook (CAC) will be presenting at the upcoming Canadian Sport for Life (CS4L) Summit in Gatineau on “Building a Foundation of Physical Literacy for Women 55-70+ through Fundamental Movement Skills.”

Sydney Millar (CAAWS) will be presenting to the Federal Provincial Territorial Sport Council (FPTSC) workgroups meeting in advance of the CS4L Summit in Gatineau, QC. The workgroups are looking at CS4L/LTAD implementation and what is “quality” sport. Sydney will present information with regards to our work with girls and women, and what is necessary for the future.

2. Most Influential Women List of 2015

The Most Influential Women (MIW) List is published once a year to celebrate women leaders making an impact in the Canadian sport and physical activity sector. Every year, we see the scope and depth of leadership in sport and physical activity across the country by the number of women that are nominated.

3. CAAWS Wall of Influence

New this year, CAAWS will be recognizing women who have been on the Most Influential Women list 5 or more times. These women will be inducted in to the CAAWS Wall of Influence. This honor represents the consistent influence these individuals have had in Canadian sport!

Congratulations to the 2015 Wall of Influence inductees!

4. Leading the Way: Working with LGBT Athletes and Coaches webinars

These webinars will profile CAAWS’ resource developed for coaches and sport administrators to learn best practices and tips to make sport more welcoming to LGBT athletes and coaches. During the session, key topics from the resource will be highlighted, including taking stock in your organization, how to use inclusive language and address disrespectful language, dealing with an LGBT athlete or coach coming out to you, addressing locker room concerns, and more. The webinar will end with time for participant questions and discussion.
