The people's game? Equality, diversity, and inclusion in football

Nov 23, 2020, 02:28 PM
This week I speak to Paul Cleal about diversity and inclusion in football. 

This summer Paul was appointed to the Premier League board as an independent equality advisor, to work with them and the clubs in advancing anti-discrimination policy. 

Paul has over 30 years experience specialising in corporate finance, consulting and HR. His work in promoting diversity and inclusion made him an OBE in 2020.  

I discuss with Paul about what diversity and inclusion looks like in practice, we take a look at football’s anti-discrimination efforts so far, and we talk about how the new FA football leadership Diversity code might change things.
