Gender Barriers in the wider community.
Whilst, as you can see, a great deal of my work revolves around sport. It is by no means my only area of interest. I am passionate about equality and inclusion in all areas of life.
I am proud to be associated with fabulous organisations that promote equality and diversity, such as the Diversity Trust, which offer training such as, Diversity in Practice. Working with Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans (LGBT) Communities.
I am deeply committed to exploring subjects like unconscious bias and the, sometimes very deep-rooted origins of bias, stereotypes, and prejudice.
Please feel free to reach out if this is an area of interest to you or your organisation.Read More
Body image and other barriers.
How about young people with issues about their body, those overweight or underweight. Or those with eczema, scars, or other physical conditions which cause them embarrassment
Young people with low self-esteem, self-image, or confidence. Those who struggle with English, or from a culture where families are culturally conservative or tend to gender stereotype and so think PE and sport are not for girls. The young woman who feels being good at or enjoying sport makes her look unfeminine. What about the boy who is worried about getting hit by the cricket ball, or hurt in the football tackle? Or Boys who don’t like sport or PE but whose family put pressure on them to be ‘sporty’. And, Girls or boys from families who themselves have had negative experiences in PE or sport.
