On this week’s MindSide Podcast, we explore the challenges women commonly face in sports. The challenges are not just the ones in the open, like blatant discrimination and sexism, but the understated biases that are pervasive throughout sports. For instance, does an athlete that cries on the sidelines get viewed differently if they are a male or female? Who would transfer to coaching men’s basketball better - Pat Summit or Geno Auremmia? Does the gender of the coach shift your judgment of their impact? The challenges are deeper than gender but about roles, experience, and perceived value in different settings. Open your mind and explore this topic this week.
