Why more women coaches are needed:
In research released by the EY Women Athletes Business Network and espnW, 74% of women executives surveyed say that a sport background can help accelerate a woman’s leadership and career potential. Having positive female coaches as leaders and role models allows young girls to say “If I can see her, I can be her!”
Female head coaches comprise 42.1% of head coaches of women’s collegiate teams at NCAA Division I institutions. (That means approximately 6 out of 10 women’s teams are coached by men!)
Minority women make up less than 14% of head coaches of collegiate women’s teams.
