In conversation with the Premier League’s first head of equality, diversity and inclusion.

Leaders in EDI is a new monthly series covering news, views, comments and debates happening across the diversity space. It also shines a spotlight on the progress being made and the challenges being faced in EDI across sport.

For our inaugural episode, we explored the topic of ‘intentional inclusion’, with a man whose role is about those very two words. Former professional footballer and manager, Iffy Onuora, became the Premier League’s first Head of Equality, Diverity and Inclusion last year. The role was created to manage EDI matters at the league, and to encourage and support best practice at the 20 Premier League clubs.

The conversation explored how Onuora is implementing purposeful action-based plans that are focused on advancing positive change at one of the world’s largest sports leagues.


The Leaders in EDI podcast is part of the Leaders Meet: Diversity Series, delivered in partnership with Meta, which provides a platform for executives within sport to come together to drive diversity across the industry, accelerate the pace of change and inspire the next generation of executives, through thought-leadership events and digital forums.
