ProMOTION Plus and the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) have partnered to deliver the Women and Leadership workshop series. This consists of six professional development sessions designed for women, by women. Half-day sessions blend theory with practical applications and provide an opportunity for women working or volunteering in sport or active living communities, the recreation field or school system to share experiences, reflect on ideas and apply specific techniques. The sessions also allow for networking opportunities among participants.
