"The Room Becomes Better When You Walk In"
2015 was the rise of women in sports. From the court to the field, and the cage to the sidelines, women dominated the global sports world and sent a resounding message that women are the present and future of the mutli-billion dollar male dominated industry. The time is now for women to own their power and walk boldly into their purpose.
Attend the 2016 Women in Sports Forum and gather with an accomplished group of women sports leaders for a dynamic day of inspiring keynotes, thought provoking panel discussions, and interactive work sessions.
The inaugural event is guaranteed to educate, empower, and build a community of tomorrow's brilliant sports minds. Don't miss this one of a kind event!
