WOMEN IN ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT

SYMPOSIUM & NETWORKING EVENT

About the Event - Why You Should Join Us!

Our exclusive and engaging professional development and virtual networking experience will take place on April 12-13, 2023. Our previous events have been widely recognized for successfully preparing women to achieve leadership positions in the growing field of athlete development.

Since the inception of the event in 2019, over 250 women seeking to enter and advance in the sports industry have gained valuable knowledge, insight, advice, and mentorship from nationally respected women leaders. Currently, over forty-five percent of those attendees have taken advantage of this knowledge and their newly enhanced network to achieve their desired career position educating, developing, and transitioning athletes.

Led by a diverse group of industry experts and respected practitioners, this year’s event will recognize and celebrate women leaders in the field of athlete development and focus on the leadership challenges of organizations to address the unique needs of the female athlete.

We look forward to your virtual participation. We are confident that you will find it of great value.

Symposium Panels and Speakers

Pre-Symposium Networking

The networking sessions remain the highlight of the symposium and serve as the catalyst for helping women identify and engage women sports leaders who can help them achieve their desired career in athlete development. Since the event’s inception in 2019, over 250 women seeking to enter and advance in the sports industry have gained valuable knowledge, insight, advice, and mentorship from these nationally respected women who lead the networking sessions. Currently, forty-five percent of symposium attendees have utilized this knowledge and network to achieve their desired position educating, transitioning and developing athletes. 

Engaging, fun and interactive activities will take place throughout the networking session:

  • Have your favorite beverage on us while engaging with symposium speakers, attendees and women in the Hilliard Solutions Community Network to further your knowledge of the sports industry, create mentoring relationships and strategic networks critical to obtaining your dream job in athlete development.
  • Meet up with other attendees to introduce yourself, review the symposium schedule and discuss how the symposium experience will help you to expand your network in the athlete development field.
  • Join attendees with similar backgrounds, experiences and career interests: current/recent graduates entering the athlete development field, individuals already working in the field and looking to advance, and those new to the field. Exchange notes on strategies to achieve your specific career goals.
