Join us on Wednesday June 5 at 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET for a 1-hour webinar hosted by   to learn how to foster and maintain inclusive rowing environments.

Colour the Trails is a national Black woman owned business, focused on improving access to outdoor activities for BIPoC (including those who lay within the intersection of BIPoC and 2SLGBTQAI+ community) adventurers. Colour the Trails has been part of several club programs as part of the Rowing For All Program (Community Sport For All Initiative (CSAI) program).

In this live and interactive webinar, Priya Moraes (biography below) will introduce you to topics such as systemic barriers to diverse community groups accessing watersports, intersectionality and how it relates to creating inclusive culture and the difference between inclusion vs tokenism. Webinar attendees will hear testimony from Colour the Trails and their participants, and will be provided the opportunity to ask questions.

Additional topics and key take-aways will include:

  • How to successfully outreach to community groups
  • Key actions to go from introductions to building and maintaining successful, long-term relationship with community groups
  • Practical examples of inclusive language and behaviour with BIPoC community members
  • How to take and deliver accountability with grace
  • Examples of “what not to say” and alternatives

This webinar is particularly relevant to club leaders and coaches involved in delivering CSAI programs, including those who need to establish legacy plans for their programs and those who are considering delivering programs for the first time. Everyone from the rowing community is welcomed and encouraged to attend.

Registration closes on Monday, June 3 at 9am PT/12pm ET. This session has a maximum capacity of 80 participants.

As a passionate ambassador for social change, Priya works to use her life experiences, skills and knowledge to build and invest in networks of care and community. As an Indian Canadian who learned a lot of outdoor skills and activities as an adult, she knows what it feels like to want to participate in something and feel intimidated by having less experience, and to want to give up. She saw there was a lack of community for Black, Indigenous, and racialized folks interested in the outdoors in Ontario and started working as an organizer for Colour the Trails in 2022. In 2023 she stepped into the role of Partnership Strategist to work with CTT partners on how to continue to support the access and inclusion of BIPOC in the outdoors industry.
