Do you know a girl between the ages of 8-18 who is interested in being physically active, learning from role models and connecting with other girls from across the country?
If so, have them sign up for the 2020 Fast and Female Virtual Summit running every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m. (Sask time) from Dec. 1-17.
- Tuesday, December 1: Welcome sessions with your group!
- Thursday, December 3: Workshop #1
- Tuesday, December 8: Physical activity #1
- Thursday, December 10: Workshop #2
- Tuesday, December 15: Physical Activity #2
- Thursday, December 17: Panel and closing session
Each session is approximately 1.5 to 2 hours long and all girls will be put into groups of 25 with 2-3 REAL (Relatable Empowering Active Leaders) Role Models.
And this year, Sask Sport is partnering with Fast and Female to cover the fees for the first 200 Saskatchewan girls who register. Don’t miss out on your opportunity!
Canadian Women & Sport is the new name for CAAWS (Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity). Click here for their website.
“This is a modern organization that stands toe-to-toe with a powerful mission, believing sport is made better through gender equity, and can achieve equity for women in society through the power of sport.”
“The new logo speaks to the power of collaboration, solidarity, and connection – those critical links that make us stronger together. We meet our partners wherever they are on their gender equity journey and support them to take their next step, whatever that might be. The gradient element in our logo speaks to this spectrum, and to the power of momentum – a movement of many individuals coming together to advance a greater cause.”
As sport organizations respond to the COVID-19 crisis, they must not backtrack on steps taken toward gender equity. As with all sectors, sport in Canada has been upended, and unless we are careful, girls and women may be left on the sidelines of the recovery. Bringing a gender lens to your “return to sport and play” planning will set you up for success, mitigate risks and create opportunities for your entire program or organization. Read more
She’s Got It All is another campaign demonstrating that while women and girls have what it takes to succeed in sport, including talent, drive and determination, they still have to overcome barriers that are typically not present for men. Check it out.
