November 10, 2011 (Nanaimo, BC) – PacificSport Vancouver Island is teaming up with the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sports and Physical Activity (CAAWS ) to present the first two workshops in their “Women and Leadership, Changing the Game” series. The goal of this series is to prepare women of all ages and walks of life to take leadership roles in sport and active living communities.

“We need more women in leadership roles within the sport and active living sectors of our communities. Women bring a different set of tools and a unique perspective to sport and physical activity. The effectiveness and strength of our abilities depend on how we learn to use these tools and perspectives. Our workshop series will teach women how to use their individual skills to become stronger leaders and to Change the Game.” Liza Taylor, Marketing and Communications Coordinator, PacificSport Vancouver Island.
