Success Begins With Commitment

CarrSports Consulting has developed a Social Justice program that will assist athletic departments who are ready to begin the difficult but necessary conversations on their campuses, plus help those departments get to the next level to create long-term action. CarrSports will also assist in the development of a meaningful path to address and increase inclusion and diversity.

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.

CarrSport’s Social Justice Team is led by Vice President Kevin Anderson with Dr. Leonard N. Moore serving as an advisor to the program. Dr.  Moore formerly served as Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin.

“Athletic Directors need to be honest with themselves and what they are bringing to their campus every day. I know it can be delicate to talk about race. I understand people have questions and want answers quickly and the CarrSports Social Justice Team can help address those needs in a quick and constructive fashion.

Athletic Departments need to value student-athlete activism and especially their black student-athletes now more than ever. We need Athletic Directors to step up and be bold and progressive at addressing systematic racism.”

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 for social justice
  • Stop systemic racism, hate and implicit bias on campus
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.

Three-Tiered Approach

The CarrSports Social Justice program takes a three-tier approach where immediate, short-term, and long-term action is discussed, strategically designed, and implemented. The program can be tailored to meet your department’s needs. Ultimately, the program will help athletic departments embrace social justice issues and be leaders on their campus, in their city, nationally and conference.

“We applaud CarrSports in their efforts to advance opportunities for Black athletic administrators in our industry. They have proven to be true advocates of our “pipeline” mission and have been fervently committed to issues surrounding equality and justice. We look forward to collaborating with Carr Sports in the years ahead.”


The CarrSports Social Justice program will help athletic departments create an atmosphere where all student-athletes feel included, are seen more than just athletes across campuses, and have meaningful conversations where the student-athletes’ voices are heard and action is implemented through a collaborative effort.


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.
