Speaker Bio

Dr. Richard Norman is a researcher + lecturer + futurist + strategic consultant who works with people to affect change towards a more socially just, sustainable, and resilient future. His work is focused on the lived experiences of peoples who have been marginalized in our society. Specifically, it focuses on the intertwining of “race,” whiteness, and colonialism in sport to deconstruct dominance within sporting cultures, while privileging the use of narrative forms aligning with oral traditions held by First Peoples around the world in order to explore new ways of knowing and understanding. The research is committed to approaches that can open up dialogue and discourses towards a more humane and morally driven worldview. His commitment to research continues now with the “Sport, Diversity, & Race Project” as a post-doctoral fellowship for the Future of Sport Lab (FSL) in the Ted Rogers School of Management at Toronto Metropolitan University. Sport has been a constant in his life, including playing varsity soccer at Queens University.
