Delivered by Inside Inclusion, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Workshops will be offered to football stakeholders across the county as a free opportunity for education and further learning around key topics within the EDI space.
The workshops will offer an opportunity for individuals to learn more about why Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is so important, and to increase confidence to talk about complex social issues. Our aim is to support football providers across Essex to create inclusive environments that offer opportunities for everyone within their communities.
Our Equality & Inclusion Officer, Milly Morgan, says “We are really proud to be able to offer so many opportunities for those across the game in Essex to receive education on ED&I topics in a supported and safe environment.”
“Society is constantly evolving, and it is vital for Clubs and Leagues to recognise the importance of inclusion and the benefits that understanding EDI key topics can have to support their local communities. I really would urge all Clubs, Leagues, Coaches and Referees to register their interest and be committed to ensuring Football is For All.”
