Annie Zaidi

BUCS and AoC Sport are delighted to announce on Friday 31 March 2017 from 4-5pm we will be hosting a webinar, online interaction presentation, with Annie Zaidi BEM, Sportswomen of the Year 2015: Helen Rollason award for inspiration and the first female Muslim coach in the UK.


Annie is currently an FA BAME Elite Coach Mentee and has had quite a journey, from pursuing her passion and what she calls ‘her second religion’ to fulfilling the industrious career she now possesses. From tackling racism, sexism and islamophobia to being named in the Queen’s New Year Honours list.

Annie will join us to discuss her journey in football, why she continues to pursue her passion despite all the challenges to becoming the first female Muslim coach in the UK. The presentation will provide insight into how Annie has influenced positive change within communities, the importance of creating a diverse workforce, fit for purpose in modern day society whilst sharing her extensive knowledge to support our workforce in implementing change within Further and Higher Education.
