About Same Game Challenge
At Canadian Women & Sport we are dedicated to creating an equitable and inclusive Canadian sport and physical activity system that empowers girls and women – as active participants and leaders – within and through sport. With a focus on systemic change, we partner with governments, organizations, and leaders to challenge the status quo and to advance solutions that result in measurable change.
Same Game Challenge is for sport leaders who are inspired to reimagine how women and girls access their sport but have been frustrated in their ability to make efficient and effective change.
Sport leaders from participating organizations will be provided with a step-by-step process that guides them on how to connect with their members to identify gender inequities. Sport leaders and their organizations will develop the skills they need to create sustainable change that closes the gender inequity gaps they face. Participating organizations will also receive access to expert coaching and peer support throughout the process.  Ready to learn more? Check out this video from past participants..
