Brentford has published its latest progress in equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in an annual report.    

The report covers the club’s work in EDI in several areas including staff and players, fans and community and compliance.

The findings provide the club with an opportunity to reflect on the work done so far and the areas that require focus in the season ahead.    

Brentford’s chief executive Jon Varney said: “At Brentford FC, our values are togetherness, respectful and progressive and we want to ensure we live our values wholeheartedly. EDI is a big part of this – we strive to place inclusivity and safety at the heart of everything we do.  

“This was our second season in the Premier League and this year we recruited Kaammini Chanrai, our first equity and inclusion director, who joined in February 2023. Kaammini will help us to accelerate our work in this space. 

“There is so much more for us to do, especially with the continued presence of discrimination within football and society.

"We want to do more to support our staff, players, fans, community and partners, and we hope that next season, we can make further progress to ensure football is for everyone. 

“I would like to thank the board, our staff, players and fans for their continued commitment to embrace the need to make Brentford FC an inclusive environment for all. 

“In particular, I’d like to thank Monique Choudhuri who steps down from the board at the end of this season, for her leadership, passion and knowledge in this important area.”
