The Carnegie Initiative
Named in honor of hockey trailblazer and social justice pioneer Herb Carnegie, The Carnegie Initiative works to make hockey welcoming and supportive. The CI funds academic research to study and help solve some of the sport's biggest problems, and tells stories from underrepresented people in hockey. Visit www.carnegieinitiative.com
The biopic “Willie,” about Willie O’Ree, who broke the NHL’s color barrier in 1958, made its World Premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in 2019 and has since been adapted to serve as the basis for a school curriculum. Visit lessonsfromwillie.com for more information.
