Tom Farrey

Founder and Executive Director, Sports and Society Program, Aspen Institute

Tom Farrey is founder and executive director of the Aspen Institute’s Sports and Society program, whose mission is to convene leaders, facilitate dialogue, and inspire solutions that can help sports serve the public interest. Farrey was previously an investigative journalist for two decades at ESPN, where he won two sports journalism Emmys, an Edward R. Murrow Award, and the 2014 Alfred I. duPont/Columbia University Award. He has also written for The New York Times. Farrey’s 2008 book, Game On: The All-American Race to Make Champions of Our Children, has been used as a text on university campuses. Investigating contemporary youth sports, it led to the 2013 launch of Project Play, the Institute’s effort to build healthy communities through sports.
