Olga Harvey spent nearly 20 years in the corporate world before joining the Women Sports Foundation in 2017 as the Chief Strategy and Impact Officer, where she made an immediate impact on the sports world.

Olga is passionate about the transformational power of sports and play equity on and off the court. In this podcast we discuss Olga’s incredibly interesting story of how she came to the United States from Russia and her path from graduation from Cornell University to where she is today at the Women Sports Foundation.

We also dive into the 50th anniversary of Title IX and discuss important topics such as “How do we educate and empower the next generation of advocates?” and “What do the next 50 years look like for girls and women in sport?”.
