Male athletes in most sports make significantly more than female athletes. One of the reasons for this pay gap is that men’s sports receive vastly more media coverage, television licenses, and sponsorship deals. However, even in cases where women’s sports are as popular, we have been slow to achieve equal pay.
In this episode, we hear from former basketball player Tajay Ashmeade about the ways in which her gender impacted her career. We examine the reasons behind the gender pay gap, highlight the progress achieved so far, and outline a way forward.
Featuring Tajay Ashmeade, CEO of Nurture SPRT and Dr. Richard Lapchick, Director, Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida in conversation with Hazami Barmada, Activist & Founder of the Humanity Lab Foundation.
