Workshop - Barriers in accessing outdoor groups faced by BIPOC

The UBC Surf Club, Varsity Outdoor Club and Ski and Board Club are hosting a virtual workshop on dismantling barriers BIPOC face when accessing outdoor clubs.  

As members of the UBC Sailing Club, we participate in a sport that has historically been white dominant and has higher barriers to entry. We really encourage everyone to attend to hear 3 speakers talk about the work they've been doing to increase the diversity and inclusivity of outdoor groups. There will also be a guided workshop on how to make outdoor clubs more accessible to everyone.

Date: Feb 24th at 5pm 

Location: Zoom 

Registration: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/who-belongs-outside-a-workshop-on-dismantling-barriers-tickets-141248497057?fbclid=IwAR0vvMoKHCqfGBrHY5h9WVE8fQDCMGFmzJSIZTkBlnJkVukqAPkcDjTMSGE

New website

The new website is live already. From here on it will be the centrepiece that helps the Steering Committee manage club membership and communication. While we will present it in more detail at the town hall, you can already check it out and help us make it work for you. If you see something that does not function, or think of something that should be there, please email JB at jb-leveque@ubcsailing.org.
