An Introduction to Unconscious Bias for Sport and Physical Activity Workshop

This workshop will help you understand bias, recognise we all have them, and more importantly challenge your reactions to them. This session aims to raise awareness that we all have biases. It is part of being human and was an important element in protecting us back in the cave days. Today, however, as we have evolved, we should be able to recognise our biases, and therefore change our response to them. By doing this we will become more tolerant of, and welcoming to difference.

An Introduction to Unconscious Bias for Sport and Physical Activity Workshop

No matter what role you have in coaching (helper, assistant coach, head coach, coaching manager) this unmissable session will appeal to you and really get you thinking.

By becoming more conscious of the decisions you make and actions you take, you will be taking another important step on the path to becoming a truly great coach.

The course has been awarded 3 CPD points by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity (CIMSPA).

This session will run for around 90 minutes to 2 hours. It depends on the flow of the session – we don't like to cut people off while they are learning!

This session will help you:

  • notice examples of unconscious bias in others
  • consider your own biases, and how these can distort your judgement about the people who come to your sessions
  • learn strategies to help you become more conscious of your biases so that you can reduce their influence
  • examine the common types of unconscious bias: affinity bias, confirmation bias and group think.

You can access the online classroom through your mobile phone, tablet, PC or laptop. For the best experience, we recommend using a desktop PC.

You will need the following equipment:

  • Headset or a device with speakers
  • Device with a microphone
  • Ability to connect directly into your router (WIFI access may drop out).

More information will be provided when you register.
