TWENTY-five participants took part in the FASANOC Women in Sports Commission conflict management and collaborative problem-solving workshop yesterday.
The day-long workshop facilitated by Hamidan Bibi was held at the FASANOC conference room in Suva.
Representatives from volleyball, bodybuilding, athletics, squash, triathlon and cycling took part in the workshop.
FASANOC Women in Sports Commission chairperson Susie Yee was pleased with the turnout.
She said the workshop was part of a series of seminars they were hosting around the country.
“Initially we were looking at 30 participants but 25 is a good number.
“We also have participants from various sports,” Yee said.
Sixteen-year-old Vasiti Baleilomaloma, who was the youngest participant, said she learnt a lot from the workshop.
“I have learnt a lot about how to be a good role model to inspire the upcoming generation in the sport,” said Baleilomaloma, who represented indoor volleyball.
“The facilitator also taught us ways to avoid conflicts and how to handle it.”
