About this webinar: In collaboration with the British Columbia Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (BCCEWH), Girls Action Foundation is developing a series of knowledge-building backgrounders for organizations and people working with girls and young women. The backgrounders will feature practical tools as well as resources for facilitators. We have drafted the third backgrounder on girls, physical activity and culture. The resource also includes sample activities to generate discussion with girls around these issues. As experienced girls’ programmers and facilitators, we are inviting you to participate in this special webinar in order to review and improve the content of this resource. We welcome your feedback and knowledge to this project.
Special Note: Limited space is available. Advance reading of the draft backgrounder (approx. 20 pages) is required to participate fully in this review webinar. The purpose is to hear feedback from girls’ programmers/facilitators directly on draft materials
