Karen Dobres, Director of Lewes FC, joins Mo and Allegra to talk about how she got involved with the club despite actively disliking football in the past!

Lewes FC is the first football club in the world to pay male and female players equally, and one of very few sports clubs where the men and women play on the same pitch. The club has inspired a book and a social movement, and Karen isn’t stopping there.

Find out more about Karen’s incredible mission, and get this month’s What Fresh Hell Is This? report.

Is tech behind the times? With Claire Hopkins, Co-Founder of Ideal

Claire Hopkins is a rather accidental tech entrepreneur. Having co-founded Ideal with her husband, she was shocked by the level of blatant sexism she encountered. After many years running a successful technology company, Claire has come to believe that a lack of inclusion is holding the sector back. 

We talked to Claire about how we can move the tech industry forward, why women don’t want to work in tech, why and how we should move away from a culture of boozy staff outings, and how we can completely redesign the office. 

Plus Mo and Allegra discuss the latest What Fresh Hell Is This? news.

Shyness Superpowers with Nadia Finer, founder of Shy & Mighty

57% of the population are shy – so why are we designing the world around extroverts? Nadia Finer, Founder of Shy & Mighty, is on a mission to help people recognise the power of shy people, and to support those people to get their voices heard. When our society sends out the message that there’s something wrong with being shy – from school days, being forced to raise a hand, to the workplace, where not shouting over people in a meeting can mean not being heard at all – many shy people retreat, and we miss out on their perspectives and ideas. Mo talks to Nadia about why we should want to hear contributions from people who think more than they speak. And people who have been carefully considering the issue before offering an opinion.

Allegra brings us this month’s What Fresh Hell Is This? report.
