Varies by firm, but you’re generally right. At my firm, I’ve tried to push for social events to be more inclusive and open to a range of interests, but it’s hard to totally eradicate the stereotype.

Yes, I feel I constantly miss out on conversations with Vice Presidents just because I don’t like sports.

If somebody asks about sports this is what you say: I haven’t been following X team lately. What’s been going on this season? Then they will drone on for fucking forever. Sports guys love to hear themselves talk. Also, people love the people who enable them to talk about dumb bullshit. Your problem...is solved. Also, don’t try setting anything alternative. You’ll look like a weak idiot who focuses on the wrong things.

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias?

Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.
