Webinar for Sport Organizations with Gail Hamamoto
Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity – (Toronto, Ontario – January 16, 2018)
Does your organization need strategies to recruit more women to its board of directors?
Don’t miss this January webinar hosted by CAAWS and presented by Gail Hamamoto, current Executive Director of the BC Wheelchair Sports Association and the Vice President of the Canadian Paralympic Committee.
Gail’s webinar will address how to create an inclusive board culture, the value of adding women to your board, and strategies to recruit more women. A passionate advocate for equity in sport for athletes with a disability, Gail has more than 25 years of professional experience at the board table.
“This webinar didn’t exist when I first got involved at the board level, and I believe it would have been very helpful on my journey,” said Gail. “This resource provides a roadmap for all of us to improve how we recruit, support and retain women leaders from diverse backgrounds.”
The webinar is on Wednesday, January 30 from 12:00PM – 1:00PM ET. Register here!
Registration is $10 per participant to support the cost of the webinar delivery.
CAAWS is pleased to present this webinar in partnership with the Province of British Columbia and viaSport BC.
