Director will stop the football-talk on jobs

The female director Ann Francke, who is the head of the great british management company, the Chartered Management Institute, has met fierce criticism on social media, because she's on british television, has proposed that, must reduce football-the talk around the workplace.

The unusual proposal was made in the british tv program 'Today', where Ann Francke claimed that many women feel ostracised, when talking about the football or cricket in the workplace.

It writes multiple media, including the BBC.

Women do not follow these sports, and they don't like to be forced to talk about sports, and they care not about not being included in the conversations, says Ann Francke, who argue that the bosses around at various jobs to put a damper on football-talk.

Ann Francke is concerned that discussions about football, including discussions about the assistant video-judge system WAS to exclude women from the interviews and create divisions around the offices at work.

- It is a direct port to a more boyish behavior, if it is allowed to escalate. It is a sign of a more masculine culture, says Ann Francke, and adds:

- It is very easy to escalate from a chat about WAS that the men clap each other on the back and talking about their last conquest in the weekend.

Ann Francke believes, however, that football-talk should be banned. But, she suggests, to talk about the sport will be restricted and moderated.

The british director says the secret is to talk about sport in a more inclusive way and be aware if there is someone who just stares blankly out into the room in the course of the conversation.

IN the BBC programme 'Today' was sportsjournalisten Jacqui Oatley, however, directly disagree and argued that it is a terrible proposal.

- If one banishes football-talk, you will only achieve that fremmedgører the people from each other, who want to talk with each other. It would be extremely negative to tell people that they are not allowed to talk about sports, because girls do not like sports or some women don't care about it. Such a thing creates even more divisions, says Jacqui Oatley.

On the social media is the british director Ann Francke was subjected to severe criticism because of his opinions - including from many women.

The former minister Tracey Crouch called the proposal from Ann Francke for the pure nonsense in a posting on Twitter, where she showed a picture from his office with a big football-poster. To the advertisement, she wrote:

'What a game of nonsense. All are welcome to drop by for a little sports talk on this woman's office.'

Allyson Graham threw himself also into the discussion, and wrote the following:

'I find her comments very offensive. I am a female, and I'm a big fan of soccer. How can she afford to say to women does not follow sports and can be involved in a conversation about sports. I participate in plenty of sports talk in my office. This is just another example of someone trying to create problems where there are no problems.'
