Register for FREE Raise Your Game women's event
Kick It Out is looking for women eager to make their mark in the football industry to join the campaign for a FREE event at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium on Monday 11 November.
The Raise Your Game event, which continues Kick It Out's Season of Action activity to recognise 20 years of campaigning, will be split into two separate morning and afternoon sessions, one focusing on women already working in football, and the other for those trying to break into the game.
Consisting of keynote speeches, one:one mentoring sessions and a coaching masterclass, the event will be led by established figures, including senior female staff from Manchester City, looking at the barriers currently facing women throughout football and how best to overcome them.
Forming part of Kick It Out’s Mentoring and Leadership Project, the event will also provide attendees with an insight into job opportunities existing across the game. The areas of interest to be covered are;
• Management and coaching
• Media and communications
• Football administration
• Community and grassroots
• Sports science
• Work of licensed agents

Kick It Out
Kick It Out is football's equality and inclusion campaign.
The brand name of the campaign - Let's Kick Racism Out of Football - was established in 1993 and Kick It Out established as a body in 1997.
Kick It Out works throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and work for positive change.
The campaign is supported and funded by the game's governing bodies, including founding body the Professional Footballers Association (PFA), the Premier League and The Football Association.
2004 marked ten years of campaigning.
Internationally Kick It Out plays a leading role in the Football Against Racism in Europe (FARE) network and has been cited as an example of good practice by the European governing body UEFA, the world governing body FIFA, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, European parliamentarians and the British Council.
