Racism and sexism continue to permeate many aspects of society. Although sport provides opportunities for diversity, it is not immune from these –isms (Ross, 2008). This hands-on interactive session will introduce a teaching tool that encourages students to explore possible personal biases related to race and gender. In addition, results from a study using this methodology will be shared. The goal for this session is to provide tools and materials for practitioners to implement effectively.
