More than 100 students across the country participated in Atlantic Canada's first conference on the business of sports, changes in the industry and how to make it more inclusive. Hosted by UNB, the event, which sold out its 150 spaces, could make a big difference influencing the students in attendance, said co-chairs and UNB students Charlotte Sampson and Kristian D'Amore. "I think we want our delegates to feel like they have a voice and they have a part to play and they can make a difference in the industry," said Sampson. Of the many topics covered over the weekend, one focused on using sports to fight inequality. A panel of sports professionals, who have worked to break down barriers for Indigenous, LGBTQ and women, offered powerful stories and advice.
