Chris, one of the best football coaches in the business, is mentoring and encouraging - and has importantly given a job - to Manisha who is now Foundation Phase Lead at QPR Academy. Chris, who made his mark in the Tottenham Academy, works tirelessly to promote great coaches, whatever their gender. Take Annie Zaidi for example. Annie was determined to shake off the tag as the only hijab wearing UEFA B Licence coach - and Chris gave her the opportunity to showcase her talent by asking her to lead sessions with his Under 18 side at QPR.
Daunting as it was initially for Annie - you can just feel the empowerment such a gesture gives to a young up and coming female in football. Coach Annie was then approached by National League side Solihull Moors and now works in the Midland club's Academy with the Under 16s and Under 18s. She has also just taken over as head coach of Solihull Moors Ladies FC.
This 11-a-side coaching is an essential requirement of applying for the UEFA A Licence - a bottle neck for women who want to progress in elite coaching. Chris Ramsey recognises these roadblocks for talented coaches and then uses his coach mentor role to work through these barriers.
In the absence of the ability to clone Chris, my International Women's Day week plea is #BalanceforBetter for more of these empowering partnerships.
