Girls & Women in Sport

Canadian Women & Sport

Through our partnership with Canadian Women and Sport, we are able to provide our members and their coaches/volunteers/athletes with access codes for the free e-learning module, Gender Equity LENS.

The goal of this module is to provide individuals with the tools and information to better act on their commitment to gender equity. This, in turn, will create the conditions to support women and girls to participate, lead and stay involved in sport.

The LENS Framework 

We all have unique ways of looking at the world. We see through our own lenses, which influence our perceptions, attitudes and actions. Canadian Women and Sport define the LENS framework as, “a four-step process developed to help you make more equitable decisions by taking stock of the relevant issues and barriers, challenging assumptions, prioritizing your ideas, and making an action plan for equity.”

The e-learning module was designed for anyone who shapes sport programming. Whether you are a coach, volunteer, organizer, or athlete, this course is designed for you. Moreover, you will receive two NCCP professional development points upon completion of the Gender Equity LENS e-learning module (if you are registered with The Locker through the Coaching Association of Canada).

She Leads

At Sport PEI, we believe gender equity should be among our top priority. When women and girls are afforded equal opportunities to succeed, our greater sport community thrives.

Our She Leads program offers the opportunity for women in any role - coach, official, athlete, volunteer, mom - to learn from and be inspired by each other.

She Leads - Women in Sport Grant

 

This grant was made possible by the donations of the women who participated in our She Leads events in 2020.
The purpose of this grant is to support women in sport by providing a grant they can use for personal development opportunities.
The development of women leaders in sport is extremely important to us, and we hope that through this grant, we can help foster a more inclusive, equitable environment for women in sport.
The value of the grant is $1200.  Depending on the applications, this may result in one grant being awarded or two grants of $600.
Application deadline: June 3, 2021. Apply here.
She Leads Events

In November of 2020, we held three She Leads sessions where influential, inspirational Island women shared their personal stories and offered their valuable advice on how to thrive and succeed as a woman in their respective fields.

 

She's Got It All

At Sport PEI, we are committed to keeping girls and women in sport. In order for this to happen, we need to address the barriers that disproportionately affect female athletes.

Through our partnership with Canadian Women & Sport, we have the opportunity to highlight our very own athletes, and bring to light the barriers that they face in their respective sports.

Together as a sport community, we can spread awareness and tackle these issues.
