Spaces are limited for two free Alberta Sport Development Centre women in leadership workshops on March 3.

Both workshops, Conflict Resolution and Influencing Change, will be led by Karen Melnyk, organizational development and human performance consultant.

Women are encouraged to register as there are only six spaces left, according to Gwen Farnsworth, program assistant with the Alberta Sport Development Centre.

“What we are looking at doing is providing some skills for the people who are going to attend this,” she said.

“So if women are looking for various skills, these workshops are designed to provide that both for the practical and the theory,” she said, noting that the registration deadline is on Friday.

The main focus for the workshops is to engage women working and volunteering in the sport, active living, recreation and the school system but the Alberta Sport Development Centre has also invited people from the business community.

“As we know, many of these skills can transfer through all of those areas,” Farnsworth said, adding that a wide variety of women can attend.

Conflict Resolution is from 9 a.m. to noon.

Influencing Change is from 1 to 4 p.m. Both will be held at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre. For more information, contact 403-342-3231 or visit www.asdcentral.ca.
