London FA is proud to be supporting Black Herstory Month and is inviting people from across the capital to join the Martin Shaw King Trust and the Whiteness and Race Equality Network for a special event.
Taking place from 10am on Monday 14 October at St George’s University, Cranmer Terrace (SW17 0RE), the Whiteness and Race Equality Network Workshop will look at how white academics and counsellors can work more positively across borders of race and celebrates the contributions black feminist writers have made to the critique of whiteness in relation to the black experience in mental health and sport.
As part of the event, talks delivered will include the impact of race and mental health in coaching and fan behaviour, counselling for cultural empathy and what young people of colour want from counselling in and outside of sport.
Amongst those speaking at the event will be QPR Technical Director, Chris Ramsey, and The FA’s Equality Manager, Funke Awoderu.
The event marks 30 years of the Martin Shaw King Trust and the work of cultural journalist, Martin Shaw, in addition to the past and current work of the Whiteness and Race Equality Network, towards the civil and political rights of young children and BAME men and families’ experiences within mental health and sport.
