INTEGRATE. ADVOCATE. MOBILIZE. | HIJABI BALLERS VIRTUAL COMMUNITY CONFERENCE | SEPTEMBER 21 - OCTOBER 23, 2020
Presenting you with: Hijabi Ballers ❗VIRTUAL❗Community Conference! The conference themed “Integrate. Advocate. Mobilize.” will feature live webinars each week as well as other programming including Toolkit Tuesdays and Spotlight Sundays, along with other virtual activities.
The objectives of the conference are to:
- Integrate Muslim females in physical and digital sports spaces and connect them to existing resources and allies to support their growth
- Equip allies with the knowledge and tools to advocate for Muslim female athletes and provide athletes with the tools and confidence to advocate for themselves
- Create short-term and long-term action plans which mobilize our communities to be environments where Muslim female athletes feel welcome, safe and empowered.
The Hijabi Ballers Community Conference 2020 will be a space where all are welcome- we invite all Muslim female athletes and their allies- parents, coaches, community organizations, sports clubs, media, businesses and corporations- to attend. Hijabi Ballers has taken considerable strides over the past few years in improving opportunities for Muslim females in sports in this city and worldwide, and our goal is to sustain this progress and continue to push for more. But we can’t do it alone and we definitely can’t do it behind closed doors. Through this one-day conference, Hijabi Ballers will open doors to discussions never had before. We will bring you one-of-a-kind presentations, workshops and discussions on this year’s theme of Integrate- Advocate- Mobilize, led by incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and passionate individuals who are change makers in this space. This conference is open to all members of the community, including all ages and genders. Join us starting September 21st, 2020 as we Integrate Muslim females into the sports sphere, learn to Advocate for them and Mobilize change together (from the comforts of our homes!) 🏘️
