WIS Event: Elevating and Championing Each Other Through Sponsorship

Wednesday August 24, 2022
7:00PM – 10:30PM

Location: Shaw Centre

How can we communicate, connect, and inspire confidence for women and underrepresented genders within the biomechanics community? At every career stage, sponsors play a critical role in publicly acknowledging achievements, advocating, and generally using their power and privilege to help their mentees. At this workshop, we will have interactive roundtable discussions addressing topics from finding sponsors to acknowledging bias as a sponsor. Attendees will leave with actionable ways that they can be a better sponsor (at any career stage) for the biomechanics community.

All attendees are welcome to participate.  A sign up form will be circulated prior to the conference to all registered delegates to confirm attendance.
