Roundtable with Reed-Francois on women leaders in athletics

Logos for Women Leaders in College Sports and the NCAA.

On Thursday, I joined Desiree Reed-Francois, MU’s director of athletics, as well as university and industry leaders from across the country for roundtable discussions hosted by Women Leaders in College Sports and the NCAA. Together, we considered the importance of inclusive applicant pools, how to find (and hire) the best people and ways candidates can prepare for executive level leadership positions. Leaders also discussed how to build a pipeline of talented candidates from all backgrounds.

Athletic Director Reed-Francois has a bold vision to grow our championship culture at Mizzou — while also supporting our incredible student-athletes. It was great to celebrate her work as well as our collective efforts to build a welcoming campus.

We were proud to participate in these conversations and we know there’s always more we can do. We are committed to creating an inclusive learning, living and working environment where all Tigers can achieve excellence.
