Transcending Bias (Feat. Jarrod Barnes)

June 16, 2020

Whether we like it or not, we all have biases in our lives and we all face biases in our lives. Some biases are helpful- they allow us to categorize information and make quick decisions- while others can be extremely harmful as we have seen across our country in recent weeks. In this episode, we speak with Jarrod Barnes about two particular types of biases that impact athletes as they transition into the professional world: athlete stigmas and agism. Jarrod has become an expert on this topic through his experience as a football player and coach at Ohio State, a student-athlete development professional at Clemson, and now the Manager of Former Player Marketing and Services with the LA Rams organization.
