Digit Murphy’s Mission To Change The Gender Focus In Sports

I sat down with Digit Murphy, coach, and creator of Play It Forward Sports Foundation, Inc., to discuss her long established career in female athletics. Digit has made it her mission to bring awareness and financial backing to the field of women’s athletics.

“I’m trying to paint a picture of empowerment, of power, of positive energy, of collaboration. It seems like it’s pie in the sky. But, I see it working under our umbrella right now.” – Digit Murphy

The video is in 2 parts. The first version (above) delves into the state of women’s athletics and highlights Digit’s plan to incentivize sponsorship through collaboration. The 2nd Video is the FULL INTERVIEW (below) that includes more background and history into Digit’s extraordinary work. The interview process was thoroughly enjoyable as Digit’s infectious personality, and optimism came to life.
