Take BC Soccer's Diversity Working Group's 'Women in Soccer' Survey

Posted on May 6th, 2013 by BC Soccer

In late 2012 BC Soccer formed the Diversity Working Group to oversee and guide the development of the game of soccer in BC as it relates to issues of diversity.

With the current focus being 'Women in Soccer', the Diversity Working Group has held dialogues across the province to discuss women's current roles in the game, some of the barriers to participation and potential solutions to those barriers.

To supplement the dialogues the Diversity Working Group is also conducting a survey as a part of their initial information gathering process.

They invite you to take part and lend your voice to these ongoing discussions.


For more information about the Diversity Working Group, please contact Markus Reinkens, Staff Coach, Manager of Soccer Science / Player Development at markusreinkens@bcsoccer.net.
