The Sport LeadHERship Series

The annual Bison Transport Sport LeadHERship Series is designed to empower and inspire women to become leaders in sport, community and life. It’s a professional development opportunity designed for coaches, administrators, community leaders, and volunteers of all genders, from all sports, from across Manitoba.

This year’s FREE five-part online series brings together inspirational leaders from all areas of sport to tell their personal and professional stories, offer valuable advice and guidance, and share practical tips that participants can use on and off the field of play. Hosted by media personality Sara Orlesky, participants will build their networks and knowledge bases through a variety of interviews and presentations so they can empower and encourage the girls they work with to stay active and involved in sport.

Our next session, Building on the Strengths of Indigenous Youth, is November 10, 2021 at 7 PM. We’ll discuss the importance of empowering Indigenous youth and creating a sense of belonging in sport and recreation. Elder Charlotte Nolin will be giving blessings at the beginning of the session, and we’ll hear from:

  • Lee Spence integrates Indigenous knowledge and practices into projects, programs and policy.
  • Jessica Guimond works to provide important health services to the Sagkeeng First Nation.
  • Jayme Menzies is a champion volleyball coach for the CMU Blazers.
