GENDER EQUITY IN SPORT SCHOLARSHIP & MENTORSHIP
To continue from the George Brown College Future Women in Sport Award by L. Walzak, established in 2012, the GXS Lab has established a Gender Equity in Sport Scholarship Award starting 2020. The current award currently recognizes one outstanding female graduate of the George Brown College, Centre for Business, School of Marketing, Sport and Event Marketing Program (Postgraduate) (B4OO) and will now recognize one outstanding female and one outstanding male ally in their fourth year of the Ryerson University RTA Sport Media Program. The goal is to grow this award to a higher bursary value, to add more recipients over time and to provide financial support and mentorship in the early stages of their career.

From a practical standpoint, we help traditional sport media broadcasters and major professional sports leagues better understand esports fans’ consumption habits and motivations, as well as audience expectations and differences between traditional sports and esports" (Laurel Walzak 2018).
GXS LIVE is an engagement between unsung sports professionals and the industry that they bolster through their tireless work. The aim of the show is to bring those bringing real change and influence to the industry out of the boardroom and into the spotlight, highlighting their perspectives and allowing sports fans and future sports professionals some insight into the business behind the field of play.
