Abstract

This multiple case study examined the personal and professional journeys of three women athletic directors at NCAA Division-I institutions. From the data analysis, five primary themes emerged: Macro and micro aggressions; complex situational identities; liberal feminism; mentorship; and persistence. As they shared their journeys, the participants displayed high levels of persistence when it came to overcoming challenges and barriers in male dominated athletic administration.
