There are some inspirational black women coaching at the top of their game, but the top 2 tiers of the women's game in England include just 1 black female head coach - why is that? Are the stats better in the men's game? Since Hope Powell made history as manager of England Women, how has the landscape for black female coaches changed? Are black female coaches being left behind? With so much focus on finding female coaches, does there now need to be an intersectional approach that looks at gender AND race? What mentoring exists for black women coaches? Do black female players see coaching as a viable career option?
Join Jess, Hope, Peckham Town FC's Mary Phillip and Audrey Cooper, Head of Women's Coach Development at the FA, for a brilliant discussion on their experiences in the industry and what we all need to be doing to challenge for change.
