Karen Dobres was never ambivalent about football – she hated it. So why has she done a Cruyff turn to become actively involved in the beautiful game?A former model, manager and counsellor, Karen is not a typical football club press officer. But then Lewes is not a typical football club. Owned by the community, it’s the first to pay its male and female players equally. She’ll be talking about the history of the club and of women’s football, and her own football journey. And she’ll also reveal why equality is about more than making a point – it makes damn good business sense too.
So join Brighton & Hove Chamber of Commerce and PLATF9RM for our International Women’s Day Pop-up Breakfast, and hear how both Karen and Lewes FC are working hard to even the playing field for women.
