Maxime Jones (Watford Ladies), Ben Carter (WiF board member) and Benny Bonsu (journalist) at our Wembley event.
A sell-out audience attended Women in Football’s first ever “Celebrating Male Allies” event at Wembley Stadium.
Following an introduction by wiF board member Jo Tongue, host for the evening Benny Bonsu introduced the panel of Jon Holmes (Sky Sports), Ben Carter (Just Eat and WiF board member), Mark Bullingham (The FA) and Richard Bevan (The LMA).
The panel shared new insightful perspectives on how to empower women in sport through mentoring, training, career development within organisations and changing work culture, offering practical and positive advice.
A question and answer session followed, where the panel answered in depth questions put to them by an attentive audience - and when a fascinating discussion drew to a close, there was still time for many new faces, along with a few familiar ones, to make the most of the opportunity to do some good old fashioned networking!
