UManitoba co-launches international, virtual lab for gender equity in sports

The University of Manitoba and the University of Nottingham have launched a virtual lab focused on fostering gender equity in sport and physical activity. The Environments Designed for Gender Equity in Sport & Physical Activity Lab (EDGE Lab) will use a “gendered environmental approach” to reimagine equitable and inclusive sport and physical activity. “EDGE Lab will serve as a virtual locale to support our focus on gendered environments and how they affect athletes’ health and performance,” explained EDGE Lab co-lead Dr Joanne Parsons (UManitoba). “We anticipate the virtual lab will facilitate the growth of our research program through increased visibility and expanded opportunities for developing partnerships.”
