Football Hackney Laces London Sports women

Laces Community Club

There are 146 numbers saved in my phone with the prefix ‘JAFC’ — Just Another Football Club. When I set up Hackney Laces 6 years ago, that’s what we were. A single club for girls in my borough. And now it’s morphed in to so much more.

How can we get more women in the creative industry?

Woman are underrepresented in the creative industry. Study upon study shows gaps in pay; job function; seniority …

I work at Nice and Serious. As  a studio of 17 in London and 3 in New York, we have 6 women. 3 are in project management roles, 2 creatives and one in senior management. Whilst we are above industry average, we know there’s so much more to do. There’s also so much more we need to understand about the issue. Why aren’t we getting more job applications from women? How can we attract women to both us as an agency and the industry as a whole?
