Stronger Together Webinars
Through a combination of expert panels and athlete stories, Wales Lacrosse presents a series of webinars to provide athletes, coaches, management, volunteers and beyond with the tools to understand, learn, and work together to create a safe space for everyone.
We aim to:
• highlight how the systems we currently exist in disadvantage many in sport
• provide practical tools to dismantle inequality, and
• empower us all to actively practice allyship.
Our webinars will platform a diversity of expertise, voice, and lived experience from across lacrosse and global sport.
