PNS Women’s Resource Group Spring 2021 Meetings
We will be holding Zoom meetings on the third Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm to 8:15pm. Meetings will be formatted as either a group discussion on a selected resource, such as an article, or a speaker who will provide a space for Q&A. Meetings with the speaker will be recorded so everybody can watch even if you aren't able to make it to that meeting. Discussions will not be recorded to respect privacy and foster an open and safe environment. This group is open to all members of PNS who are interested, including athletes, coaches and officials.
Our first meeting of Spring 2021 will be on Tuesday, April 20th at 7:30pm to 8:15pm with speaker Janelle Atkinson. Janelle is a two-time Olympian; Sydney 2000 Games (9th in the 800m freestyle and 4th in the 400m freestyle) and competed in the Athens 2004 Games. Dubbed the 2000 US National High School swimmers of the year, Janelle went on to compete for the University of Florida where she became a three-time SEC Champion and a 10-time All-American student-athlete. With a vast knowledge of competitive swimming, she then went on to coach collegiately for 12 years at the division 1 level; 8 years as an Assistant Coach and 4 years as a Head Coach. Her experiences as a multi-racial female as both an athlete and a coach, led her to pursue consulting in DEI to shed light on the racial climate in aquatics, and to open conversations about race within the aquatic community and beyond.
