Fostering Diversity and Inclusion In and Through Sport

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 (12:00 PM - 1:30 PM) (PDT)


Join us for our 6th episode of the Sport, Leadership and Social Change series where we’ll explore Fostering Diversity and Inclusion In and Through Sport.

Sport is not always inclusive or accessible. Yet sport has also been one of the most powerful platforms for fostering inclusion and diversity. We will be examining what can we learn THROUGH sport about the value of diversity and inclusion and the kinds of work needs to be done IN sport to better embrace diversity and achieve inclusion.

This session is hosted by Dr. Jennifer Walinga, professor at Royal Roads University’s School of Communication and Culture alongside guest panelists:

>>Craig MacDougall, Indigenous Coach Education and Development Consultant Coaching Association of Canada

>>Marnie McBean, Chef de Mission 2021 Tokyo Olympics, Author, Olympian 1992, 1996, 2000

>>Stephanie Dixon, International and Canadian Paralympic Committees, Paralympian 2000, 2004, 2008

>>Carolyn Trono, Director of Quality Sport Dev’t, Olympian 1984

>>Dr. Natalie Durand-Bush, Professor U Ottawa, Director of the Canadian Centre for Mental Health in Sport
