Petro-Canada sport leadership sportiff conference

Date: November 4 – 6, 2020

Our sport community encompasses daring leaders and courageous change makers. We witness thoughtful acts of inclusivity, resilience, self-care and collaboration, and these examples of deliberate action challenge us to rethink our own behaviours and assumptions.

For growth to continue we need to open ourselves to vulnerability. A more diverse and inclusive structure for all participants must be established at home, in our boardrooms, on our fields of play, and in our locker rooms. Through a series of engaging keynote presentations, breakout sessions and networking opportunities, delegates will be motivated to consider how their intentional acts of courage, inclusivity, and resilience can shape positive change.

Join your fellow sport leaders in celebrating moments of courage witnessed in 2020, and collectively committing to design and inspire future acts of courageous leadership in our sport community.
