3 September 2019

Brentford Football Club Non-Executive Director, Monique Choudhuri, has been added to the Women in Football Board.

Monique specialises in the provision of strategy, leadership, cultural engagement and performance management solutions and skills. She has more than 25 years of experience in this field and has worked across a range of industries. As well as her commitments at Griffin Park, Monique is also Managing Director at Career Path Training and Consultancy Ltd.

Alongside fellow new inductee Lisa Parfitt, Monique will join current directors Prof. Sue Bridgewater, Ben Carter, Liz Ellen, Anna Kessel, Hala Ousta, Lungi Macebo, Jo Tongue, and Chair, Ebru Köksal.

“We are delighted to add the expertise of two such outstandingly talented individuals to Women in Football,” said Ebru.

“Monique and Lisa will each bring their own unique personal experiences and expertise to the board that will also help drive us forward at such an exciting time for Women in Football as an organisation, and across the industry.

“The response we have had since the launch of our industry-changing #WhatIf campaign last year has been staggering. It is a movement that continues to gather momentum and have a positive impact for girls and women globally.

"These are hugely exciting times for Women in Football. Now with Monique and Lisa on board our focus remains on driving forward to make even more of a difference."

Monique added: “I am proud to have been appointed to the Women in Football Board. Women play vital roles in making football the success that it is, and by sharing our professional experience, we hope to encourage more women and girls to get involved in the game.

“The women’s game is on the rise following the success of the World Cup Finals this summer. We hope to build on this success ahead of the 2021 UEFA European Women’s Championship, of which the Brentford Community Stadium is a host venue.”
