Hope Powell CBE

The current game continues to evolve, and today there is greater presence of a diverse group of athletes taking the field. Having been involved in the game for many years as both player, coach and leader it is important to recognise the importance of EDI in the wider context of the game and sports management in general.

I am pleased to be part of the new and revolutionary Postgraduate Certificate in EDI. This is the first of its kind and is designed to meet the needs of the modern game. It will provide high quality training for former and active players who want t develop their career in any Sport arena.

The programme seeks to arm each candidate with the necessary skills, knowledge and understanding so they are able to develop and implement EDI structures, frameworks and plans to ensure that the sports industry they represent has a holistic approach to Equality Diversity and Inclusion.
