On Thursday 26th May, five of us from Tapestry attended the MRS &More Challenge, in association with The FA. After being offered a drink and a bite to eat, we swiftly proceeded with the task at hand: responding to a brief from The FA geared around increasing female participation in football at all levels of the game.
All the groups came up with interesting and creative approaches to the research which would be undertaken to help achieve this goal, and we had a great time discussing this ourselves before Megan, one of our Research Managers, presented our approach to the room. While we didn’t win on this occasion, we all took something away from our discussion and from hearing what the other groups had come up with.
Afterwards, we made use of the open bar and polished off the food on offer as we mingled with the other researchers who had made their way to 1920 bar in Farringdon. Overall, it was a really fun evening and we’d like to thank the MRS &More group for putting it on for all of us in attendance!
