National Girls & Women in Sports Day Celebration
Watch our collaboration with NOMAD on our celebration of National Girls & Women in Sports Day.
We host quarterly Zoom sessions, aptly named ‘Office Hours,’ featuring distinguished guest speakers. These sessions are opportunities for us to gain valuable insights, wisdom, and personal growth, both as individuals and within our profession
We have made sure that while we are a Global network that you have local connections in your state and region.
The purpose of a mentor is to help you grow as a person and become the best version of yourself. This may involve helping you achieve your personal or career goals, introducing you to new ways of thinking, challenging your limiting assumptions, sharing valuable life lessons, and much more. Our Mentoring program helps women navigate life as a female athletic director. We are currently partnering with Fearless & Capable to provide high quality mentoring for our members.
