You are invited to join our upcoming event with Sanjay Bhandari (Chair of Kick It Out), Anouj Patel (Co-Chair of AG Embrace Leeds) and Nadia Stephenson (Co-Chair of AG Embrace London), to discuss tackling racism and discrimination in football, in business and in life.

AG Embrace is Addleshaw Goddard’s ethnicity inclusion network, embracing positive change to build and maintain an inclusive and supportive culture at AG.

Kick It Out is an organisation dedicated to championing equality, furthering inclusion and campaigning for positive change in football. Kick It Out is at the heart of the fight against discrimination in any form for anyone who plays, watches or works in football.

He was a member of the Premier League's Equality Standard Independent Panel for four years, spent 15 years as a lawyer at a leading international law firm, and has held a number of leadership roles at KPMG and EY.

During the event we will focus on Kick It Out's main challenges, initiatives and lessons learned from recent events on and off the football pitch.

This event is open to everyone, and no knowledge of football is required – we look forward to seeing you there!
