As we continue to expand services and support to help our clients tackle today’s complex issues, we are excited to announce Sydney Millar as the latest Sport Law recruit. Sydney joins the Sport Law team of passionate, committed, and talented sport consultants working to meet the increasing demand from sport leaders for trusted and credible thinking partners.
Sydney has worked in the Canadian sport sector for 25 years, including leadership roles with Canadian Women and Sport (then the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity) and the Sport Information Resource Centre (SIRC). In these roles, she developed and implemented successful national initiatives, leveraged the latest research and thought leadership to influence system change, and served as a valuable ally and resource for sport leaders and other sector stakeholders. Close collaboration with national, provincial/territorial, and community sport and physical activity organizations has ensured she understands the diverse needs, interests, and priorities across the country.
“Sydney’s track record and passion for making sport and physical activity a better place for girls and women and other underserved groups makes her a natural fit to join the Sport Law team,” shared Sport Law Partner, Dina Bell-Laroche. “As the sport sector looks to create more inclusive environments that foster a sense of belonging, we are grateful that Sydney will be able to support more strategic, collaborative, and evidence-based decision-making to help our clients thrive.”
