The CAAWS Women and Leadership Program consists of a series of five 3-hour professional development (PD) sessions that blend theory with practical applications, and provide an opportunity for  women working or volunteering in the sport or physical activity sector to share experiences, reflect on ideas and apply specific techniques. The sessions also allow for networking opportunities among participants. Developed for women by women, the workshops are now being rolled-out across Canada.

Coaching Newfoundland and Labrador is proud to partner with CAAWS to offer the workshops to the women of our province.
