Meghan will present “Comfortable to Act: A Roadmap to Stepping Up.”
The session, centered within a secure and shame-free environment, will help coaches learn how to identify and leverage privilege, power, and race dynamics through sport. This workshop will provide actionable steps to overcome the paralyzing question of “how can I help?” Participants will leave enlightened, engaged, and empowered to join field hockey’s growing community of change with two on-field lesson plans that invite anti-racism work into your team environment.
