This week, Karen Dobres an elected Director of Lewes Football Club also known as Equality FC which is the first football club in the world that pays its female players the same as the men which not only means equal pay, but an equal level of coaching and the same quality of strengths’ and conditioning training.

During this episode, we discuss how Football teaches us some lessons as to why the game is representative of what is and has happened for women on a wider scale by being excluded from business. We explore why it’s crucial we create a level playing field for women in both in prestigious positions and in business.

“For so long, female players have been accepting crumbs from the men’s table and the reason is they’ve had to overcome so much to be there in the first place”

- Karen Dobres
