WIBLI events provide women at all career levels with access to extraordinary female leaders, inspirational ideas to advance their careers, as well as networking opportunities with a community of professionals who are passionate about gender equity.

Inspired by the movie “A League of Their Own,” we will explore the ways in which female athletes take skills learned on the field and apply them in their professional lives. Join us as we learn how negotiation skills can be strengthened by discussing a controversial call with a referee and how leadership is developed through on the court communication with teammates.
