About The Workshop

As part of the Pilates Foundation’s continued long-term commitment to diversity & inclusion as a Pilates organisation we are pleased to be offering this workshop on Unconscious Bias.  This event is a shared recording of the Unconscious Bias webinar that happened earlier in July.  You must be able to attend 'live'.

People generally want to do the right thing about how they treat others.  Hopefully, few people go out of their way to discriminate against others.  But despite our good intentions, there is a lack of progress in diversity and inclusion in society.  What could be going on here?  This is where our innate biases or implicit assumptions come in.  We all have these.  Without our awareness or recognition, our unconscious biases can and do affect the way we treat other people.  We are all conditioned by our own heritage, experience and how we see the world outside.  Media and culture play a large part in this conditioning.  Persistent and repeated representations impact our perceptions, often subliminally.  In this workshop we look at recognising and mitigating negative impacts of these biases and what we can all do to help create an inclusive environment in Pilates.

The training will be delivered by Robert Cole, the founder and director of Forth Perspectives consultancy, Robert Cole  Forth Perspectives works with organisations to enhance inclusion and equality, with an ambition of a fairer, more inclusive society.  For information about Robert:

This 90-minute workshop will be interactive through the aid of stories and images.
