Event description

Description

The Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation is proud to welcome Dr. Jen Welter, the first woman to coach in the NFL, to speak at the 3rd Annual #iLEAD Speaker Series. Dr. Welter was hired by the Arizona Cardinals in 2015, thereby breaking the "glass sideline" for women coaching in the NFL. She recently released her first book, "Play Big: Lessons in Being Limitless from the First Woman to Coach in the NFL", which chronicles her experience coaching in the NFL. Prior to the Cardinals, Welter had already made history when she was the first woman to play in a contact position in a men's professional football game. Furthermore, Welter spent 14 years as a linebacker for the Dallas Diamonds, a women's professional football team, winning four championships along the way. CSLi is honored to provide a platform for such an inspirational trailblazer to share her story.
