Below are short, bite-sized videos featuring diversity and inclusion. Among them are Para athletes, discussing a number of topics such as why diversity and inclusion is important in sport, what barriers currently exist, and how Canada can become a leader in this space.
Join our new Facebook group to share and discuss these resources with fellow members of the sport community.
These videos help elevate the tools already available in the diversity and inclusion portal, which was launched last year and includes a key resources library as well as a self-assessment to see where you or your organization currently stands and how to start making diversity and inclusion a priority.
