Ju’Riese Colón: The Challenges Ahead for the U.S. Center for SafeSport

There are few issues in sports more important than the safety of the athletes competing. Since 2017, the U.S. Center for SafeSport has been tasked with investigating allegations made by athletes in the Olympic and Paralympic movement of sexual abuse, physical abuse, emotional abuse, bullying and harassment. With more than 240 complaints coming per month, the issue remains a challenging one for the center, which has more than 1,000 open cases needing to be investigated. The center’s new CEO, Ju’Riese Colón, is tackling the issue head on, coming to the organization in July after serving as the vice president of child and club safety at the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. In this episode of the SportsTravel Podcast, Colón discusses why she took on the job, how the center is prioritizing its work and what host cities and the sports-event industry should be considering and doing when it comes to protecting the athletes competing at events.
