Leading Culture Change – #SaferCultureSaferSport Online Seminar Series

Where is it?


When is it?

Thursday, 16th June, 2022

Throughout the #SaferCultureSaferSport campaign, we have promoted the foundations of a safer culture.

Safer cultures:

  • Listen
  • Learn
  • Lead

As part of the Lead foundation, we are asking organisations to lead with positive actions and values.

Organisations should lead by example to empower everyone with the confidence to challenge and instigate change. Part of this includes ensuring they have the correct policies and procedures in place to minimise the risk of harm. It also means responding effectively should concerns be raised.

This seminar will…

  • Share a Leaders perspective; how their experiences led to and motivated them to create a positive culture change.
  • Explore how the British Paralympic Association became a person-centred organisation by focusing on creating a positive team experience.
  • Discuss the processes and benefits of listening and learning from each paralympic cycle.
  • Highlight the impact creating positive behaviour and actions can have on embedding culture change.
