Members of Women in Football are being invited to recruit their friends and colleagues as the organisation pushes for a big growth in numbers.
WIF's membership has more than doubled over the past three years and now stands at more than 6,000. Now the network wants to expand to 10,000 by the end of 2022 and is calling on every existing member to reach out to a potential new recruit and #SignHerUp.
Individual membership of Women in Football is free to people of any gender who support equality in the game. Members are given exclusive access to WIF's extensive programme of face-to-face and online events and career development resources, many of which are also free of charge.
Other benefits for WIF members include discounts on events such as this month's Vitality Women's FA Cup final and eligibility for the scholarships and mentoring opportunities made available as part of Women in Football's #GetOnside initiative.
How it works
In order to #SignHerUp, just visit the Women in Football website and use the refer a friend page. All you need to do is enter the email address of your colleague or friend, and WIF will do the rest.
And there's something in it for you. Every existing member whose referrals lead to three new members signing up will be entered into a draw to win one of three complimentary tickets to our next Women in Football Be Inspired Conference in 2023.
As WIF and its members know from the last conference in March, these tickets will be in high demand!
Women in Football CEO Yvonne Harrison said: "Employers in football are increasingly recognising the value of a diverse workforce, so we're seeing more women building careers in the game. But we know that they still experience barriers to their progression, and that more needs to be done to build a truly gender-equal football industry.
"That's why we'd like all our members to encourage their friends and colleagues in the industry to join Women in Football, become part of our community, and help us effect change.
"So if you're a WIF member already, and you know someone else who should be, please help us grow and #SignHerUp through our website. Remember that male and non-binary supporters are all welcome in Women in Football too!"
