Kick It Out and Show Racism the Red Card present a joint conference
The conference will provide insight into the work of Kick It Out and SRtRC and outline ways that football clubs can engage directly with both organisations in promoting inclusion.
‘Working Together For Equality’ will provide a set of tools for football clubs and community departments to develop their skills and knowledge in combating racism and delivering equality.
SRtRC and KIO share the aim of eradicating racism in all forms, not only from the footballing world but society as a whole.
This conference will give a deeper understanding of the complementary work of both campaigns, offering effective ways for clubs to fully utilise our partnership opportunities and further engage communities.
The conference is by invitation only and is aimed at Community Officers and Press & Player Liaison Officers, as well as those responsible for adhering to the Equality Standard within clubs. The workshops and panel discussions will be tailored to your role at the club – delegates will be allocated to relevant workshop groups.
The day will feature:
- Introduction by the Chief Executive of SRtRC, Ged Grebby and Kick It Out’s General Manager, Roisin Wood.
- Following the presentation, Ged and Roisin will join a panel of ambassadors to take questions from the delegates about the work of our campaigns
