Programmatically Created

Over 375 hand-illustrated attributes were created and perfected over months of development.

While images will share certain standard traits, they also have independent traits based on each individual sport, making this collection totally unique.

Mission

One focus is to help bring awareness to gender disparities in athletics, not just in participation and opportunity but also to gender pay inequities. Another goal is to support organizations that go beyond awareness and are advocating for systemic change.

In a study funded by the Canadian government, it was found that, 1 in 4 girls may not return to sport following the pandemic. (www.womenandsports.ca). The toll that the pandemic has had on girls committing to sport has been significant and if changes aren’t made, we could see 350,000 girls sidelined in a post-pandemic world in Canada alone.

WIS will be donating Twenty percent of our sales to organizations with similar missions. As leaders in the space, our first donation will be to the Women’s Sport Foundation. This is a non-profit organization, led by former tennis star, Billie Jean King. This organization provides funding for research, advocacy and programming so that all women, girls and gender diverse athletes, can participate in sport.

Other areas of focus for donations will be to local, provincial, and national organizations that support BIPOC women and girls, those with disabilities and 2SLGBTQIA+ athletes. We believe in active participation in sport throughout the lifespan and are interested in organizations that promote girls staying involved in sports and physical activity.

Why do we support this cause?

We want to support causes that advance the status of girls, women and gender diverse athletes as the system in place is discriminatory and oppressive. We believe these athletes should have the same access to sporting opportunities that their male counter points do.

We also want to support causes that increase access to sport because we believe that through participation in sports, girls can develop important life skills like teamwork and leadership while building self-confidence.




About

When we met more than 15 years ago, we shared our love for fitness and have participated in many triathlons over the years. Physical activity is a shared passion, and we are each other’s biggest cheering section.

Melissa, who has her Master of social work, has dedicated her career of 20+ years helping others, with a specialization in mental health, accessibility and advocacy. She will be the force behind directing funds to organizations and programs that fit our mission. Melissa has been fortunate enough to be involved in sports since she was a young child and continues to enjoy fitness into her late 40’s; bootcamps, spin, HIIT and strength work outs are favourites.

Victor is an art director for a software company and has been making things pretty for over 20+ years. He's in charge of all things creative. Victor also competes in triathlons and has finished multiple Ironman events. He credits his wife for getting him into the sport. When not training, he enjoys a round of golf and photography.
