We’re hosting an online professional development webinar in partnership with Manitoba Possible. The topic covers person-first language and attitudes in sport. The goal of this webinar is to equip coaches and the sport community with an understanding of how to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for athletes with disabilities.
The session will take place on Zoom on Wednesday, Nov. 15 from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m.
A recording of the webinar will be available after the session, but we strongly encourage you to attend live for the best experience.
