GSM Live: Journey to the Top - Race, Gender & the Athletic Director
Higher education is an environment ripe for discovery, new knowledge, and innovation. However, the role of Athletic Director at university levels still reflects the commonly seen disparities between representation of race, gender, experience, and perhaps most ironically - education level. Beyond Black and White, what are the underlying factors for the still murky ‘pipeline’ to administrative leadership in American college sport?

In the latest field study report from the Global Sport Institute, research reveals that much like coaching, the diversity at the top is still very monochromatic and that more often than not, non-white athletic directors hold higher degrees in education than their white counterparts. 

On the next Global Sport Matters Live, we ask experts from predominantly white institutions and historically black colleges and universities to shed some light on the pathways into the position and what opportunities look like, and what the role of the Athletic Director demands in a pandemic (and post-pandemic) world.
