First-Ever WCS Session for Student-Athletes!

Thursday, January 24, 2019 - 12:15pm

Her Next PlayAudra Emerson & Sara Wegmann of CareerPrep and Her Next Play, a nonprofit that empowers female athletes to confidently launch successful careers, have designed a first-ever session specifically designed for current student-athletes, or those who have recently graduated. We are excited to add this new program component for WCS 2019! The female athletes of today are the women coaches of tomorrow!


In their session "Your Next Play:  Confidently Transition from Sport to Career" student-athletes will learn about how to leverage the incredible leadership skills they built through sport.  It can be challenging to translate and market those skills and experiences to employers. During this interactive session, you will learn how to identify and articulate the transferrable skills you learned as an athlete, and reflect on your “superpower” – what strength differentiates you and drives your success? Through engaging exercises, you’ll practice how to more confidently tell your story and market your skills to employers. Build confidence in your skills and leave empowered to take bold steps to launch your career.
