About the CAAWS’ “Women and Leadership Program”:

The Canadian Association for Advancement of Women and Sport’s (CAAWS) Women and Leadership Program consists of a series of five professional development sessions that blend theory with practical applications, and provide an opportunity for women working or volunteering in the sport or physical activity sector to share experiences, reflect on ideas and apply specific techniques. Redeveloped since 2014, the Women and Leadership Workshops feature new content and relevant discussion for today’s young professionals and experienced leaders. The sessions also allow for networking opportunities among participants.
