On October 5, 2019, Squash BC in partnership with the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) is presenting the Emerging Female Leaders Forum.

The forum is an invitation-only limited seating event developed for the squash community and focused to increasing squash participation of women and girls in the sport in British Columbia.

Attendees will learn about current trends in the sport, proven best practices and hear relevant insights from the sport and squash community through a facilitated panel and round table discussion.
