Lucie Nguyen – co-leader of slowpokes.mtl @_lucitronelle

Justine Denault – universal accessibility consultant at AlterGo

Topics discussed:

- What inspires and motivates you to run? How do you find balance in juggling work, life, family, friends, & rest?

- The place of women in run culture. Do you find you fit in the existing landscape? What’s it like running in mixed vs women’s only run clubs? What’s it like in the competitive field? What’s it like for women in sport at a young age? What are some subtle factors of influence that affect women and girls in sport. 

- The business of running and women: What is the effect of the images emerging from the business side of running on runners? Has there been significant change in the industry over the years? Who has been an influence lately? 

For the occasion, attendees were asked to donate the amount of their choice to Logifem, a local organisation committed to providing vulnerable women and children with support and housing that allows them to feel at home, heal and rebuild their lives. ⁠
