Join Kick It Out for discussion on racism in football at University Of Chester
Kick It Out will gather influential figureheads from across the game to share their views and experiences of the impact and challenges of racism in football for a panel discussion at the University of Chester.
The FREE event will be hosted by the organisation and the Forum for Research into Equality and Diversity (FRED), with the aim of encouraging debate about how football currently deals with issues of racism between the panellists and audience.
Part of the University’s ‘Diversity Festival 2017’, the discussion will see expert panellists working within the sport put forward their ideas before participants are invited to share their ideas in what is expected to be an engaging forum.
Panel members confirmed so far include Hayley Bennett, Education Officer at Kick It Out, Sophie Cowell, Researcher for FRED and member of A.S.P.I.R.E, Kick It Out’s young ambassador group, Steve Smithies, Regional Coach Mentor at The FA, and Sean Cottrell, Chief Executive Officer at Law In Sport.
Helping to share best practices and offering constructive proposals on how to tackle racial inequalities will be main focus for the discussion that takes place between 5:15pm and 7:15pm on Tuesday 28 February.
