On this week’s episode I talk with Funke Awoderu, Equality Manager at The Football Association about how and why she decided to work in football.
This is what the FA had to say on their website:
“The FA Group doesn’t just govern and develop the game. We are also committed to improving our reputation for innovation and excellence by using the power of football to build a better future.
As the Nation’s favourite game, we believe football creates and promotes a better and healthier society. In doing so, we encourage and promote the involvement of groups across all levels of football to the greatest possible number of people, regardless of race, age, disability, religion or faith, gender or sexual orientation.
In terms of participation and quality, we provide a fun and safe environment in which everybody can enjoy football. Whether playing, coaching, managing, officiating, administering or watching, we maintain certain values and every decision we make reflects our high standards of integrity, respect and commitment to all of our players, supporters and stakeholders.”
