Gender Equity Consulting

Embracing gender equity builds better sport for all.  In a 2020 survey of nationally funded sport organizations, 89% of organizations believed that gender equity was either essential or very important to their organization. But, an even greater number (95%) agreed that they needed more training and support on how to reduce barriers in sport for women and girls.

Informed by our 40-year history of committed leadership and impact, we partner with sport organizations, governments, and leaders to build better sport through gender equity. We’re experts on systemic change and strive to build a stronger, more equitable sport system for girls and women and for all Canadians.
