Colour blind awareness in football - Clwb PAWB Summit 2022
The Colour Blind Awareness in Football workshop provides an opportunity for Equality Champions and other Club Members to develop their understanding of colour blindness, a condition which affects one in 12 males and one in 200 females across all roles in football. Using simulated images, the workshop will explain how colour blind people see kits and equipment, websites/ticketing/retail software and publications/advertising/communications and will also consider the implications for your venue and facilities.
The workshop will be delivered by Kathryn Albany-Ward who is the founder and CEO of Colour Blind Awareness.
The workshop is interactive and engaging and provides a safe place for learning, where participants can share ideas and good practice.
- The workshop is primarily intended to be educational, providing an initial introduction to the subject, the impact colour blindness can have both on the individuals affected and upon your own organisation and your role within it.
- The workshop will offer ‘Top tips’ so that you will leave it with a better understanding of how you can support the colour blind people you interact with regularly, whether as a coach or in administrative or other roles.
The workshop forms part of the CLWB PAWB Summit, will take place online via Zoom and is limited in numbers.
If you require accessibility support or have any questions about the workshop please contact PAWB@faw.co.uk
