First Step

Welcome to First Step, a video series featuring athletes engaging the communities most affected by today’s social issues, from healthcare access and gender equality, to childhood obesity and mental health. Former NBA all-star Jerry Stackhouse travels around the country and meets with athletes to discuss issues that are important to them.

In this episode, Stackhouse speaks with Becky Hammon, former WNBA All-Star and the NBA’s first full-time female assistant coach, about her mission to break gender barriers. Stackhouse and Hammon visit Girls Inc., an organization that works to inspire the next generation of strong, smart, bold women, and work together to help young basketball players reach their full potential.
