Women's leadership in the sports field

Tara L. Messmore


The purpose of my senior project is to analyze and recommend solutions for a practical problem. I intend to research why there is a lack of women in sports leadership and what can be done to increase the representation of women in this field. After a thorough analysis of this research, I intend to propose answers to these questions and provide solutions as to how this phenomenon can be corrected.

The interest behind my inquiry holds personal relevance to my background and great importance to my future. By learning more about this practical problem and sequentially arriving at conclusions, I hope to generate potential solutions benefiting not only my aspirations, but those of other women with similar interests.
