To kick off Mental Health Awareness Week, we assembled some brilliant women in football for an open conversation about the struggles of juggling a career with family life and other commitments outside of work.
Following a viral interview with Reshmin Chowdhury where she discussed her experiences of ‘mum guilt’, many of you came forward to share your stories about the difficulties of combining working in football with being a parent, spouse, or friend.
Keeping this topical and much-needed conversation going, our webinar was introduced by sports broadcaster and Women in Football ambassador Jacqui Oatley MBE before handing over to Reshmin to host the hour-long discussion. Joining the pair were sports broadcaster and Olympian Jeanette Kwakye and former Everton and England goalkeeper Rachel Brown-Finnis.
From swapping stories to heaps of useful advice to help set boundaries and find that elusive work-life balance, you won’t want to miss this important conversation. Watch the webinar in full here.
