Women's + Network

Huddersfield Town's Women’s + Network comprises a diverse group of people who are undertaking research to gain insights into female experiences in football, and who are implementing changes to increase female representation, inclusion, and engagement at and around the game.

Members of the Women’s + Network are leading the way in opening up dialogue with supporters, staff, and other stakeholders of all genders and from all backgrounds to champion, enhance, and celebrate female experiences with the Club, whether in employment, as an outreach programme participant, as players or supporters, and at both home and away fixtures, for everyone’s benefit.

Since launching inMarch 2022, the Women's + Network has grown from a small founding team of eight people, to over 30 members. The group aims to meet at least quarterly and the members are providing valuable insights into their experiences as women attending matches, and as allies and advocates of female inclusion.
