The CAAWS Women and Leadership Network
Connecting women leaders in sport and physical activity across Canada
The Women and Leadership Network was created by the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) to support the involvement of women leaders in sport and physical activity across the country. The Network has been designed as the go-to place where members can connect, build their skills, share ideas, discuss issues, find solutions and take action.
What YOU Can Do
The success of the Network relies on the active engagement of members to create a space where members can build their skills, connect, share ideas, discuss issues, find solutions and take action. Make the Network part of your day – add a comment or ask a question on the forum, add your voice to the current “Take Action” campaign, recommend a book or professional development opportunity, invite a friend to join…there are many ways you can contribute!
As of November 15, 2012, CAAWS’ Women and Leadership NETWORK is open to both men and women. CAAWS decided the Network would be more influential by sharing the information and resources with men who are important allies in achieving gender equity. Both women and men will benefit from the information, resources and advice from actual women leaders.
The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to creating an equitable sport and physical activity system in which girls and women are actively engaged as participants and leaders. CAAWS provides a number of services, programs and resources to a variety of clients, including sport and physical activity organizations, teachers, coaches, athletes, volunteers, health professionals and recreation leaders. Since 1981, CAAWS has worked in close cooperation with government and non-government organizations on activities and initiatives that advocate for positive change for girls and women in sport and physical activity.
