CAAWS Women & Leadership Workshop Series

Join us for our 2020 CAAWS Women & Leadership Workshop Series! Facilitated by Jennifer Fenton & Joanne Stygall Lotz

About this Event

About the Program: CAAWS’s Women and Leadership Program consists of a series of six professional development sessions that blend theory with practical applications, and provide an opportunity for women working or volunteering in the sport or physical activity sector to share experiences, reflect on ideas and apply specific techniques. These workshops are highly relevant for today’s young professionals and experienced leaders. The sessions also allow for networking opportunities among participants.

PacificSport Fraser Valley will host 3 of those 6 sessions over the next three months. We invite women (ages 16+) from all corners of the sport and physical activity sectors (and beyond) to join us for professional development, idea-sharing, and networking over the course of 3 informative and inspiring nights. So, if you are a coach, administrator, official, athlete, we’d love to see you there!

Workshop dates and descriptions are below.

Workshops are $20 each, OR you can attend all 3 for $50! Each workshop can earn you NCCP Professional Development points – be sure to enter your NCCP number upon checkout.
