Webinar Invitation: Creating Inclusive Environments for Trans Participants in Canadian Sport
CCES – (Ottawa, Ontario – April 25, 2016) – On May 4, 2016, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) will host a webinar to introduce “Creating Inclusive Environments for Trans Participants in Canadian Sport – Guidance for Sport Organizations.” The 90-minute webinar will present the policy guidance recommendations and their supporting rationale, with a look at both recreational and high-performance sport. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions.
The webinar is targeted at administrators of national and provincial sport organizations and multi-sport organizations who are involved with policy development.
The guidance document was created in response to the sport community’s desire to improve their policies and practices as they relate to trans participants. It was developed in consultation with the Trans Inclusion Expert Working Group, a group of experts representing a variety of professions and perspectives.
The full document will be released by the CCES on May 4, 2016, and will be available for download at www.cces.ca.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 4 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT). Participants are required to register in advance through GoToWebinar:https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/5633283327891609345
