The i9 Sports Show podcast: What it takes to make it as a woman in the business of sports
Women have a place at the table when it comes to the business of sports. Two women working in sports today talk about what that looks like in 2021.
March is Women’s History Month, so what better time to celebrate the contributions women have made in the business of sports?
The latest episode of The i9 Sports Show podcast, host Chloe Sullivan interviews two women with careers in sports, including former college soccer player Faustine Perrin and i9 Sports franchise owner Alisha Grant of Charlotte, NC. In addition, i9 Sports Marketing Manager Erica Duncan talks about our upcoming March 11 webinar, What It’s Like Being a Woman in the Business of Sports (Click here to register).
Perrin is team administrator for the Tacoma, WA-based women’s soccer team OL Reign, and previously worked as a Program Director at an i9 Sports franchise in Kansas City. Perrin, who grew up playing soccer in her home country of France, talks about some of the challenges she faced as a girl taking on a sport that was mostly played by boys. “Women have to be stubborn, still, because we’re not given the chance — we have to take it.”
Grant, an MBA who previously had a career in corporate America, and Perrin both deliver some inspiring advice to other women in sports as well as to the parents of girls involved in sports.
