IRWG Research Assistant Professor and SHARP scholar Philip Veliz coauthored a report on gender bias & women's college sports coaches, which was recently published by the Women's Sports Foundation. The study assessed the workplace experiences and views of female and male coaches across the spectrum of national, intercollegiate sports.

Beyond X's & O's is the largest ever nationally representative survey of female and male coaches of women’s college sports. The findings confirm there is systemic gender bias in the coaching workplace of women's college sports, and that while many female coaches experience gender bias, few of their male counterparts perceive it.

Key findings and the full report are available at BeyondXandO.org.
