Curling and inclusion: how to truly move forward together

Curling can be a sport where everyone truly feels a sense of belonging but we need to properly plan on how to get to that place. Participants will learn what equity, diversity and inclusion are and how they are all interconnected. Participants will also learn about bias, privilege and best practices when working with historically marginalized communities.
