Ashley Baker is the associate athletics director and senior woman administrator for Xavier University of Louisiana and the founder of the Women in Sports Forum. At Xavier she serves as a member of the university Title IX committee serving as the gender equity in athletics liaison. Baker is also an adviser for the sophomore class, Gold Star Dance Team and Golden Girls Pom Squad.
Dr. Ashley Baker founded the Women in Sports Forum in 2015 and in February 2019 it will be Detroit. Ashley says that having worked in college athletics for 15 years she determined that there were not many developmental programs or conferences that young women had access to learn about the sport’s industry and network with others. "I created the Women In Sports Forum because growing up I knew I wanted to work in sports, but I did not have access to people in the industry or events like this. I'm committed to providing a space where young women are able to learn from women who are leaders in the field." -Dr. Ashley Baker
