Sport Leadership - Creating Opportunities for Women

When female athletes decide to make the transition into leadership positions they bring with them numerous skills that have been developed from participating in sport. Many times these include high standards for success, the ability to overcome obstacles, exceptional discipline, and the ability work with and inspire a team - all of which are tremendously valuable for any organization. Even with all this potential, it's commonly known within the sport community that women are greatly underrepresented in sport leadership roles.
