The invitation is open to all interested volunteers – the registration deadline has been extended to Thursday, May 19.


As part of our commitment to support volunteer recruitment and retention and to further advance education in diversity, equity, and inclusion we are excited to offer the Gender Equity LENS framework through a partnership with both Special Olympics Canada and Canadian Women & Sport. This framework will give you as sport leaders the information and tools you need to act on our commitment to inclusion and make program decisions that better serve women and gilds in sport. In a recent survey, 98% of participants felt that the information and skills they learned through the Gender Equity LENS were valuable to their organization and was an assess to improving volunteer retention and recruitment.
