    **The Inclusive Sport and Recreation Summit**

    The Inclusive Sport and Recreation Summit (ISR Summit) is embedded in the Sport Conference and is an opportunity for people who play, lead, organize, research, and fund inclusive sport and recreation in Alberta to discuss how we can create a more inclusive, sustainable, accessible, and successful system. June 1st will include speakers from all of these roles, speaking on issues as diverse as how to collaborate between mainstream and disability programs, to how to remove barriers to the full participation of LGBTQ2S and Indigenous participants with disabilities. Major funders of the conference include SSHRC, Alberta Sport Connection, and KIAS.

    Check out the full ISR Summit schedule on The Sport Conference website.
