Description du stage : The Organization of the Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) project is based on promoting gender equity in sport and promoting proper nutrition among the youth and sport communities of the Caribbean. World governing bodies of sport have identified the low numbers of women employed with National Sport Organizations as a weakness and have identified a need for gender-sensitive programming to provide the appropriate skill building opportunities for women. Building on an existing Sport Administration program, this project involves adapting materials to meet the specific purpose of providing skills training to women in the field of sport administration and to creating opportunities for more women to be employed in that field.
