The Pink Tape

Lauren Walter

Welcome to 'The Pink Tape Podcast' where we dive into the world of sport and unveil the hidden (and not so hidden) challenges faced by women and girls.

All athletes come across 'red tape' eventually — those frustrating rules and obstacles that get in our way — but for many women, there's an extra layer that we call the "Pink Tape." The Pink Tape is the kind of tape that makes it harder to get recognition and resources.

Join us as we chat with extraordinary Canadian athletes about how we can cut through this extra tape and make positive change.

Grab your scissors — we've got work to do.
