Gender Equity in Recreational Sport – Understanding How Facility Design Can Attract and Encourage Use by Girls, Women and Gender-Diverse Individuals

Monday, November 1, 2021
12:00 – 3:00 P.M. (ET)
Facilitator: Mary Chow
Register: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUlf-6rrj0iGNSdlNiLLJi7QQFn9d3FNuxe

Awareness around diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and equity is evolving and changing the physical environment that forms the backdrop for sport and recreation. In the development of designs that consider all humans, making the case for girls, women, and gender diverse individuals can positively impact participation in programming offered at facilities and help overcome the barriers that often deter participation.

This workshop will focus on two key components related to gender equity and the design of recreation facilities:

  • Facility infrastructure design that is universal (“gender mainstreaming”) and/or gender-friendly in nature.
  • Methods to “make the case” for facility design changes in support of gender equity to a variety of stakeholders (e.g., funders, current participants, senior volunteers and staff).

Examples of many types of facilities will be shared as well as the opportunity for questions and discussion.

Gender Equity in Recreational Sport – Evaluating Outcomes Using the Best Questions and Data

Wednesday, December 8, 2021

Facilitator: Nancy Dubois
Register: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUlcO2rrzIiE9XmcQmFmLVs6OmE4oSL5tPg

Gathering and understanding the results of your efforts to address gender equity in your recreational sport organization and sharing these findings in the most appropriate way(s) with stakeholders is fundamental to sound program planning. This workshop will focus on OUTCOME evaluation in general with specific application to gender equity initiatives and understanding the impact of this work. A six-step framework to evaluation will be accompanied by practical worksheets and relevant gender equity examples shared. Discussion among participants and questions will be encouraged.
