In this episode, I talk to Matea Wasend, my former School of Kinesiology MS student in sport sociology, Tucker Center research assistant, two-time recipient of the Tucker Center‘s Pam Borton Fellowship, and inaugural recipient of the Erin Reifsteck Student Paper of the Year award from the Women in Sport and Physical Activity Journal (WSPAJ). Matea received the WSPAJ award for her publication, “Are women coached by women more likely to become sport coaches? Head coach gender and female collegiate athletes’ entry into the coaching profession,” which in WSPAJ vol 27, issue 2. To honor Matea’s work, her winning article has been given open access for the coming year. The podcast highlights how Matea came up with the idea, what she did, and what she found.
