Success Begins With Commitment

The Social Justice Team will help your organization create a dedicated social justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion environment in addition to tackling the accompanying issues inherent with these concerns.

Our Social Justice team has extensive athletic and leadership experience to guide you in the successful development, implementation, and management of programs addressing social justice including student-athlete activism, racism, hate and bias.

In addition, CarrSports will provide assistance in developing a plan to communicate these programs with your student-athletes, coaches, and staff.

Being proactive in the areas of justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion is very important, both to demonstrate your heartfelt concern and to align your already held ideals with demonstrable and measurable actions.

A Roadmap For You

Considering today’s media and intense public scrutiny, it is imperative our student-athletes, coaches and staff:

  • Establish and uphold the fight against systemic racism
  • Promote social justice on our campuses and communities
Where to Begin

As administrators it is often challenging to understand the current state of the social justice environment on campus.  CarrSports recognizes that administrators and coaches often need assistance in starting the dialogue.

We have developed programming that provides you with curriculum, data, and expertise to create a road map for your institution to follow, ensuring strength and clarity in matters of social justice, diversity, equity, inclusion.


CarrSports will help you recognize, discuss, and address implicit bias and micro-aggressions that are pervasive in athletics and throughout our institutions of higher education.


The Transforming Power of Sports

The power of sports to transform student-athletes, universities, and communities inspired CarrSports Associate, Kevin Anderson, a long-time advocate for social justice, to leave corporate America many years ago, and enter the world of college athletics.

Kevin is recognized as an innovative leader for change and has recently joined CarrSports to further expand these efforts into Athletic Departments across the country.

Program integrity has and will continue to be the priority for CarrSports Consulting.  We aspire for each and every athletic department to embrace a culture that is welcoming, sensitive, and understanding of every student-athlete, coach and staff member.

It has been the attitude and practice of every team member at CarrSports to inspect what we expect.  We assure you that our programs will help you get in front of these potentially volatile issues and demonstrate to your student-athletes and employees that you walk the walk and you care deeply about their experiences and concerns in these transformative times.
