Kick It Out is hosting its annual Raise Your Game conference on Wednesday 16 April 2014 at Wembley Stadium.
The FREE event, which forms part of the campaign's Mentoring and Leadership Project, is running for the fourth consecutive year and promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
With support coming from all levels of the game, the purpose of the conference is to give people across the country the opportunity to discuss potential pathways into football with leading representatives working at professional clubs, governing bodies and associations.
The Raise Your Game conference 2014 will be taking place in the impressive two-tiered Bobby Moore Suite, with experts in a wide variety of areas including management and coaching, media and communications, football administration, sports science, the work of licensed agents, and community and grassroots coming to provide advice and talk about their respective journeys into the game.
There will be keynote speeches, one:one mentoring sessions, themed workshops, exhibitions and networking opportunities all on offer.
Make sure to keep an eye on www.kickitout.org for further announcements around the Raise Your Game conference 2014. Kick It Out will be using #RYG to help connect event attendees on all of its social media platforms.
When & Where
Kick It Out
Kick It Out is football's equality and inclusion campaign.
Working throughout the football, educational and community sectors to challenge discrimination, encourage inclusive practices and campaign for positive change, the organisation is funded by The Football Association (FA), the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA), the Premier League and The English Football League (EFL).
A small independent charity, the ‘Let’s Kick Racism Out of Football’ campaign was established in 1993 in response to widespread calls from clubs, players and fans to tackle racist attitudes existing within the game. Kick It Out was then established as a body in 1997 as it widened out its objectives to cover all aspects of inequality and exclusion.
