Women Leaders Podcast

Aug 9, 2020

In this podcast, Patti Phillips is joined by Nevin Caple, Principal Consultant and Founder of Return of Inclusion.

As a student-athlete at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Nevin’s experience helped her explore pieces of herself she had yet to discover. She used this background in sport to start not one, but THREE, companies and become a national thought leader on diversity, inclusion and belonging in athletics.

Through her latest endeavor, Return on Inclusion, Nevin focuses on educating administrators and coaches and teaching them to navigate difficult conversations within their departments and with their student-athletes.

In our conversation, we go deeper into several of Nevin’s six ROI modules including covering, anti-racism, and privilege. She emphasizes the importance of making education a strategic priority within athletics and encouraging staff to have the courage to speak up, ask for help and allow themselves to be vulnerable.

We also talk about leading during the ongoing pandemic and global reckoning happening surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement. Nevin talks about how change starts with ourselves and stresses that it is never too late to become better.

We hope you enjoy our conversation, and remember, we are Women Leaders!
