    Live with Alysia and Shannon Woods , On Diversity Equity And Inclusion In The Running And Outdoor Industries

    Live with Alysia and Shannon Woods , On Diversity Equity And Inclusion In The Running And Outdoor Industries

    Today we are sharing the second episode Alysia recorded live from TRE earlier in the month as she spoke with Shannon Woods, who is currently the senior manager of DEI at Brooks Running among other things. Shannon tells us how her own upbringing as a mixed race woman and the experiences of both herself and the experiences of her parents during the civil rights movement as well as her own experiences as a mother who wanted to make sure her kids learned diverse histories she didn’t in school all informed her decision to work in DEI . She is working on dismantling systemic racism in the running community and on opening up opportunities in these jobs via her role at Brooks and on the Running Industry Diversity Coalition Board .
    For more show notes as always head to our website www.keeping-track.com!
    Also check out our Tees and Visors, as all of our Dec/Jan sales go to Trackgirlz 2022 grants as they work to promote "Sisterhood, Empowerment and Track And Field".

    Viola Cheptoo Lagat on the NYC Marathon and Ending Gendered Violence in Kenya

    Viola Cheptoo Lagat on the NYC Marathon and Ending Gendered Violence in Kenya

    Today we have a surprise guest hostess (Marielle Hall!) as we talk to Viola Lagat, also known as Viola Cheptoo  Lagat, who you may know as recent second place woman at the 2021 NYC Marathon (and maybe you’ve heard of one of her many talented runner siblings, Bernard Lagat?)
    She takes us through her family’s deep running roots, what her training is like, how she spends time between the US and Kenya, her journey from being a1500m runner to nearly beating the Olympic Champion in her debut marathon, and her remembrance of her friend Agnes Tirop. Viola shares with us how close to home and ever present gender based violence, like what lead to Agnes’ murder,  is in Kenya and what she and other women are doing to help change things for the next generation.

Great show

Want to love it more but the audio…

I really want to love this show. Fans of the hosts, like the guests, but the audio is not strong… volume levels shifts so it’s loud for one then quieter for the next, echo in the back, etc. Some inexpensive microphones and a podcast board to adjust volume could solve this.

Again, great content but the audio is too distracting to really enjoy as much as I would like.

Marnduh ,

Great podcast

Really love this podcast. It’s great to showcase a variety of womxn athletes, and raise awareness on the lack of equity in sports marketing & coverage.
