viaSport celebrates International Women’s Day with free one-day forum

Feb 25, 2020

On Tuesday, March 10, viaSport is hosting a free, full-day event bringing together leaders from the sport and business communities to celebrate International Women’s Day. The morning session will feature an interactive panel discussion to facilitate peer-to-peer learning, followed by a message from British Columbia’s Parliamentary Secretary for Gender Equity, Mitzi Dean and an inspirational keynote address from Olympian-turned-CEO, Charmaine Crooks. In the afternoon, the Province of B.C. is offering a unique opportunity for the public to access Gender-Based Analysis Plus Training delivered by assistant deputy minister for gender equity, Dr. Melanie Stewart.

This year’s global theme is Each for Equal, and guests of the event will walk away with the tangible tools and motivation to translate individual actions into sustainable change. Hosted at the Inn at the Quay in downtown New Westminster, guests will also enjoy networking opportunities as well as a free lunch.

Special thanks to our panel organizations, BC Adaptive Snowsports, Freestyle BC, Squash BC and Tennis BC.
