Join us for this Mishcon Academy event with Sanjay Bhandari, Chair of Kick It Out, the organisation which campaigns against discrimination in football.
Sanjay Bhandari is only the second chair of Kick It Out and replaces the founder, Lord Herman Ouseley, who held the role for 25 years. A former lawyer and member of the Premier League’s independent panel on equality, Sanjay believes football has the ability to lead on racism in society.
Sanjay, a Manchester United fan, recently completed a three-month listening tour in which conducted 150 interviews with the game’s stakeholders. Sanjay will discuss the need for a more joined-up approach to education and a more consistent application of punishments currently available.
This live session will be chaired by Derval Walsh, Partner at Mishcon de Reya, and will be held virtually on Zoom.
