Sport & Recreation: LGBTQ Identities, Myths and How To Create Inclusive Spaces and Programming

September 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

A recent survey of the Saskatchewan LGBT community found that the community was the most likely to agree that physical activity has a positive impact on mental health, yet 40% of respondents said that they have experienced discrimination in a recreational setting. This presentation will unpack LGBT identities and terminology along with addressing common myths that prevent physical education, recreation, and sport from being truly inclusive. The presentation will finish by highlighting best practices in procedures, policies, and language when aiming to make your workplace, community centre, or even simply a change room a more inclusive space.

Registration Form Coming Soon!

This workshop is hosted in partnership with Community Development, Parks and Recreation!
