The March 2016 issue of JOPERD (87(3), 9-15, includes an article by Dana Voelker titled Promoting the leadership development of girls through physical education and sport.

From page 10: “in sports alone, women are consistently underrepresented in leadership positions” and “a clear need exists to promote the leadership development of girls during youth and help narrow the gap in leadership positions during adulthood.”

The author makes the following recommendations:

  1. Embrace leadership diversity and deconstruct gender stereotyping
  2. Build networking and mentorship opportunities
  3. Encourage girls to use their voice and exercise leadership skills

The article also includes a table of links to girls’ leadership resources.

TDSB teachers may contact the library to request a copy of the article at (416) 395-8289 or
