"As one of the IHRSA members involved in creating the IHRSA Women's Leadership Summit almost 10 years ago, I've enjoyed watching the event evolve and grow. The Summit offers a valuable opportunity to connect and share with some of the greatest minds in our industry, and learn from speakers that leave women feeling inspired and empowered. I was excited to learn that IHRSA is bringing the IHRSA Women's Leadership Summit to Athletic Business and my hometown of New Orleans."
