The FA’s vision is to Unite the Game, Inspire the Nation. Football is a game for all and we are determined to break down barriers that get in the way of progress and energise those who need our support to achieve their potential.
In 2018, we published our three-year Equality, Diversity and Inclusion plan: ‘In Pursuit of Progress’. This plan sets out our ambitions and how we plan to achieve those, including setting ourselves ambitious targets on our gender balance. We are proud of the significant progress we have made this year in closing our mean hourly gender pay gap by 5%. Not only is this important in its own right but symbolic of the positive cultural changes we are seeing inside our organisation.
Publication of the organisation’s gender pay gap is required by law. However, our latest report, which includes information relating to 2018 and can be found below, also contains additional information that has been disclosed voluntarily to provide further background and context.
The FA’s Chairman, Greg Clarke, said: “This report marks a positive step forward in the reduction of our gender pay gap and this is largely due to the journey we have been on since 2016 to transform the culture of The FA.
“One of our successes has been the appointment of a number of talented women right across our organisation and we are not stopping here; this agenda has the same energy driving it as it did when we started.
“We believe a better gender balance in both football and non-football roles makes us stronger and better equipped to meet the challenges of the modern game and a modern organisation.
“We take our role in leading the way in football very seriously and are proud to be at the forefront of promoting diversity and inclusion within our sport.”
