“Smashing a Ceiling – and a Lot of Egos”

Michele A. Roberts was “recently named the first female leader of a major North American professional sports union, ending a long and sometimes contentious search” and stated after the announcement: “‘My past…is littered with the bones of men who were foolish enough to think I was someone they could sleep on’.” Wow!

The excerpts above are taken from the Globe and Mail, who published “Smashing a Ceiling – and a Lot of Egos” written by Andrew Keh of the New York Times News Service, about her historic appointment as head of the NBA’s players union, which you can read here. It’s a great profile piece.
