IWIS podcast episode: #1 – Delise O'Meally
Today’s guest is Delise O’Meally, Executive Director, Institute For Sport & Social Justice (ISSJ). Delise is excited to introduce the inspiration and creation of this new podcast sponsored and produced by the ISSJ.
Delise gives us a glimpse into her story of being a woman of color trying to climb the ladder of success as an athletic administrator. Her unique story starts with growing up in Jamaica, moving to the big city of New York, on to college as a collegiate tennis player, a young professional with the NCAA, and currently as Executive Director of a national non-profit organization.
This interview is hosted by Mat Edelson, journalist and producer appearing on NPR, ABC, ESPN, and in Houghton-Mifflin’s annual series, “The Best American Sports Writing.”
