Leading the Way: LGBTQI2S Inclusion in Sport Presentations
and Workshops (1 hour presentation up to full-day training).
This workshop provides sport leaders, including coaches, athletes,
officials, with the opportunity to understand what LGBTQphobia
is and how it can hurt their organization. From understanding
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transg, intersex and two spirit (LGBTQI2S)
language and dealing with sensitive issues such as same-sex relationships
amongst teammates, to reviewing policies and practices to ensure
they are equitable, this session allows for an open and honest
conversation about LGBTQphobia and the important role sport leaders,
including coaches, can play in making sport more accepting of
sexual and gender diversity.
These workshops and presentations are delivered
by CAAWS’ Program Lead for LGBTQI2S Inclusion in Sport,
Jennifer Birch-Jones. Known for her subject-matter
expertise in LGBTQI2S sport inclusion, Jennifer will tailor the
session to meet your organization’s needs. For more information
