Sport Management Professor Discusses Girls in Sport With CBC


Dr. Ann Pegoraro

Dr. Ann Pegoraro, the Lang Chair in Sport Management in the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics, spoke to CBC Radio’s Metro Morning in Toronto about a new report that found that one in four girls who participated in sports before the pandemic are hesitant about returning to sport.

The report was released by Canadian Women & Sport in collaboration with E-Alliance, of which Pegoraro is a co-director.

Pegoraro is professor in the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism as well as a co-director of the newly formed National Research Hub for Gender Equity in Sport, and researches sports marketing and communication along with gender equity in sport.
