This week’s recommendation is an episode of Flourish: Be Your Best Self that explores the ‘Hero’s Journey’ of Dr Leanne Norman, Professor of Sport and Sociocultural Studies and Director of the Research Centre for Social Justice in Sport and Society within the Carnegie School of Sport.
Recommended by: Virginia Bailey, Head of Participation
Why did you recommend this podcast? “This particular episode is very apt for this month as we are celebrating women in fencing during Women’s History Month.
“Dr Leanne Norman’s work in gender equity feels more important than ever at the moment. This episode on the Flourish podcast tackles some of the challenges in women’s coaching and addresses how important it is to address the issues and not just the symptoms.”
Every week a member of the BF Team will recommend a podcast. The subject matter will vary (but will be related to sport!) so we hope that over the weeks there will be something for all our members, no matter where their interest or involvement in fencing lies.
