The Centre for Sport Capacity hosted another successful event as part of our Club Development Workshop Series. The Gender Inclusivity in Sport and Recreation Workshop was hosted in partnership with the City of Welland. Our speaker, Dr. Michele K. Donnelly, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sport Management at Brock University and a member of the Centre for Sport Capacity. Her research interests include, broadly, gender and sport — particularly gender equality and the Olympic Movement/Games and in sport governance.
An informative presentation followed by an engaging Q&A session happened on Tuesday January 17th at the Welland Community Centre. Dr. Donnelly discussed the importance of understanding the context, terminology, and implications of gender diversity and inclusivity with more than a dozen sport and recreation professionals.
