Media advisory – Canadian Club Toronto’s free virtual event to cover mental health in sports and business

LifeWorks CEO, lululemon CEO and Olympic gold medallists Ashley Lawrence and Hayley Wickenheiser to speak on panel at LifeWorks-sponsored event

With many Olympians and other high-performance athletes speaking out in recent years about their mental health experiences – often driven by competitive pressures, the media spotlight and the pandemic – high-profile athletes are using their celebrity status to elevate positive mental health conversations and reduce societal stigmas. As the official mental health partner of the Canadian Olympic team, LifeWorks promotes the mental health and total wellbeing of Canadian athletes, and all Canadians, by offering support and encouraging open discussions about mental health.

With the 2022 Olympic Winter Games scheduled to begin next week, LifeWorks is proud to sponsor an inspirational business and athlete panel to continue these important mental health conversations. During the Canadian Club Toronto’s free virtual event, “sports, business and mental health,” panellists will share insights from a personal and systemic perspective on mental health in the sport and business worlds.
