Jason Lee, Equalities Education Executive
Jason is the Equalities Education Executive for the PFA and is a key member of the team.
During his playing career, Jason amassed over 650 appearances and played for 18 clubs including: Nottingham Forest, Charlton Athletic, Peterborough United, Southend United, Watford and Notts County.
His remit at the PFA is to ensure players are aware of the services of the union and in particular of the opportunities and importance of education both during and after a players career.
The Equalities remit is to ensure that black, Asian and players from minority ethnic backgrounds are accessing our courses and to provide a pathway to future opportunities in the game from coaching and managing to administrative and Board level.
As a former player Jason understands the importance of the transitional process that every player goes through and wants to help players experiencing this difficult stage: “As someone who has been through the system and played at a high level I can let players know the reality of the situation when they come out of the bubble that is professional football”.
Jason will also support any player wishing to report discriminatory incidents and ensure the procedures are relayed back to a player on a personal level.
