Play Like a Girl Founder Dr. Kimberly Clay Featured on Impact Podcast

Dr. Kimberly S. Clay, Founder and CEO of Play Like a Girl is the featured guest for the latest episode of the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.

Play Like a Girl is a Nashville-based non-profit organization working to level the playing field for girls by leveraging the skills gained from sport to propel young women into male-dominated careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Under Dr. Clay’s stewardship, Play Like a Girl has reached over 25,000 girls and young women across the United States and Canada, as well as in Africa and the Caribbean. Dr. Clay began her career as a public health analyst at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Early in her career, she saw the gender gap in education and health firsthand while working in underserved communities across the South. This led her to establish Play Like a Girl during her doctoral studies in health education. In 2007, she returned to the classroom—this time, as a tenure-track professor—at the University of Georgia where she taught and conducted research exploring long-term cancer survivorship in women.

“It was an honor to have Dr. Kim on our show,” said Shegerian. “Her important work with Play Like a Girl has been breaking boundaries and sparking girls’ imaginations since 2004 and I’m sure our audience will be inspired by her story and impactful mission.”
