The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion present a discussion on the name, image and likeness (NIL) policy, enacted by the NCAA in 2021, and the policy's implications related to law and equity.
During this discussion, we hear from three speakers who have been intimately involved in the ability of collegiate student athletes to monetize their name, image and likeness (NIL), which was prohibited before 2021. DWT associate Dorsey Hairston walks through the mechanics of the new policy, and discusses the work he is doing to provide education to athletes on procuring and managing deals, as well as providing advice to athletic departments on NIL compliance.
Tony Wyllie, CEO and Founder of The Collective Engine, brings over 25 years of experience in the professional sports sector, including serving as an NFL team executive, and an executive for the Special Olympics. Wyllie provides the agency perspective on engaging perspective sponsors, and serving collegiate athletes as they embark on their NIL journey.
Carter Henderson, Chief Communications Officer and Associate Athletic Director at Stanford University, serves as an athletic department leader, and provides insight from the inside on the impacts the NIL has had on the student athlete experience, as well as how athletic departments market and recruit future potential student athletes.
Former collegiate athlete and DWT DEI Director, Tiffani Lambie, moderated the event.
