Wendy Frisby

Dr. Wendy Frisby, the principle investigator, is a professor in the School of Human Kinetics. She and her colleagues, many of whom are current or former graduate students, have published extensively on the role of community-based sport and recreation in the inclusion of marginalized groups and the realities of conducting feminist participatory action research (FPAR). She has the passion, leadership, experience, and research skills required to successfully facilitate a participatory approach to action research with diverse groups. In keeping with the action component of a FPAR approach, she is very committed to communicating the results to academic and non-academic groups including the public, various government agencies, and non-profit organizations. She has received local, provincial, and international awards for her research.

Wendy Frisby - Co-Director

Dr. Wendy Frisby is a former Professor in the School of Kinesiology in the Faculty of Education and is the former Chair of Women's and Gender Studies in the Faculty of Arts. The overall goal of her research program is to determine how those who have the least access to sport and recreation can become more involved as decision makers and participants to promote health, policy change, and other outcomes. She conducts feminist participatory action research with citizens and practitioners to analyze how the social and living conditions experienced by those living in poverty, which are often exacerbated by existing policies, programs, and structures in community sport and recreation, create barriers to participation. She is completing a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) funded project that is examining participatory policy development with Chinese immigrant women and sport/recreation policy makers at the local, provincial, and federal government levels.
