Raise Your Game series returns with Women’s conference
Kick It Out is delighted to announce the schedule for the first two Raise Your Game events in 2018, supported by the Premier League, as the #RYG18 series kicks off with the Women’s conference at Wembley Stadium in March.
Raise Your Game is Kick It Out’s unique mentoring programme which helps provide opportunities for people who aspire to work within the football industry. Over the course of 2017, more than 500 participants were involved in the series through four bespoke events.
In partnership with UCFB, a Higher Education institution offering undergraduate and postgraduate university degrees and executive education in the football business, sport and events industries, the organisation will host the fifth Women’s conference on Monday 12 March.
A month later, the National Conference will return to Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium for the fourth consecutive year. The conference, set for Monday 23 April, will welcome over 300 mentees to the home of the Gunners as industry professionals from a broad range of fields come together to offer mentoring advice to the next generation of the football workforce.
You can find further information on both events in March and April below.
