‘Beyond Male Role Models’, the ESRC-funded research project that I’m currently leading, has attracted some media interest since our official launch in London a couple of weeks ago. We were mentioned in this Guardian article about a mentoring scheme run by Action for Children, our research partners. Last week I was interviewed by Robert Perrone on BBC Three Counties Radio. And then this accolade: an article in the MK (Milton Keynes) News that featured a photo of yours truly alongside David Beckham. I should make clear (in case there is any misunderstanding): Beckham is not my male role model!
