Southampton FC are the latest organisation to signal their commitment to gender equality by joining Women in Football’s Corporate Membership programme.

Corporate member status means the club will have access to a unique range of tailored services from Women in Football, including courses, workshops, group coaching and mentoring.

The club’s priorities will be to support its ongoing equality, diversity and inclusion goals and help drive forward gender diversity across the football industry.

Women in Football CEO Jane Purdon said: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Southampton FC as a corporate member. Joining up to access Women in Football’s support services is the mark of a club that’s serious about gender equality.

“Our corporate members receive bespoke training and consultancy services from our experts, which include group coaching, leadership training, mentoring, and assessing organisational culture. The WIF team is excited about helping to make St Mary’s a workplace where everyone has a chance to thrive.”

Positive change
Southampton become the second Premier League club to join Women in Football as corporate members, after fellow south coast outfit Brighton & Hove Albion FC. Other members include the Premier League itself and broadcasting partner Sky Sports. A number of Corporate Memberships have been taken up as pledges for WIF’s #GetOnside campaign.

The Saints’ Managing Director, Toby Steele, said: “As a club that champions diversity, we’re delighted to be partnering with Women in Football and helping to power positive change in football.

“At Southampton, we strive to create a truly inclusive environment, both for our fans and our staff, and we look forward to working with Women in Football to achieve that aim.”
