Three successful She Leads events were held from November 24-28, 2020. Our first event was a panel of four inspirational female leaders who spoke about women in leadership, shared their own personal stories and did a Q&A from the audience. The leaders were Karolyn Godfrey, Olympic gold medallist Heather Moyse, Kathy O’Rourke and Kailea Switzer.
Our next event was an interactive Zoom presentation by Jill Sadler on the topic of “What Makes a Leader People Want to Follow”.
Finally, our third event was a mother-daughter event that started out with a Q + A session between Alana Taylor and Olympian Heather Moyse. Heather reflected on prominent leaders who inspired her growing up, advice she would give to her younger self, and why it is so important for women to lead. Then we held our mother-daughter panel. We had Tracy Gairns Brioux, Tammy Roach, Alanna Taylor, and Louise Martin and was facilitated by Sport PEI Board member, Kaye Kelly. The topic of discussion was regarding the importance of fostering leadership in young women. These women also brought their daughters on stage to talk about their experiences.
The events were made possible due to the support from the Sport Partnership and Engagement Program, a project of the Sport Participation Bilateral which is jointly funded by the Province of PEI (Department of Health and Wellness) and the Federal Government (Canadian Heritage – Sport Canada).
She's Got it All
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.
“If Not Now, When?”
Sport PEI is hosting a ‘She’s Good’ event, July 21, 2022, at Bluefield High School (924 Colville Rd, North Wiltshire, PE C0A 1Y0). The day will start at 9:15AM and end at 2:45PM.
It will be a day full of fun activities for the participants with hiking, disc golf, field hockey, and goal setting. We truly appreciate Sarah being involved in this program and can’t thank her enough for being a role model for young girls on PEI. It has really come full circle, because Sarah herself has participated in She's Good in the past! Sign-up quick, there are limited spots available!
Our She’s Good events have a goal of inspiring and supporting girls (aged 10-16) lifelong love of sport and physical activity. Female sport leaders and professionals spend the day talking to the girls about healthy lifestyles, goal setting mixed in with a lot of fun.

Gender Equity Lens
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.
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).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an access code to the e-learning module, Gender Equity LENS.
