Overview

This half day event will bring together stakeholders from various sections of the football industry, including NGBs, Equality and Diversity professionals, departmental managers and board members, amongst others, and present the preliminary findings of a project that sets out to: (a) document the lived experience of British South Asian people working at managerial, administration and governance levels of English football; (b) identify ‘best practice’ at managerial, administration and governance levels of the game that has led to career progression for British South Asian people and/or opportunities for career progression; (c) highlight the constraints and barriers affecting the employment and progression of British South Asian people in English football; and (d) inform the inclusion and diversity agenda across all levels of English football. Following a presentation from the research team, delegates will be invited to share their experiences, and suggest future priorities for further diversifying football’s workforce and organisational culture.

The research has been conducted by researchers at Newman University, Birmingham and Leeds Beckett University. It has been partly funded by the Leisure Studies Association.
