The power of sport with Dr. Jennifer Walinga

Canada Soccer, Hockey Canada, Gymnastics Canada. And that's just here in our country.

This week, School of Communication and Culture Prof. Jennifer Walinga and I had a talk about something that is very much in the news: abuse in sport. 

As an athlete and scholar, and a terrific motivator, she shares some of her research on why it’s happening and what the remedy might be. 

Watch to hear more of our chat.

More of the story: Prof. Walinga is working with a new generation of leaders who want to ensure safe sport for all, assembling a team of her current and former students — all young women and non-binary people — who are conducting research projects into building a healthier environment in sport.
