April 12, 2023 7 p.m. (ET)

More than ever, business leaders at all levels are looking to hire female competitive athletes to a wide variety of roles inside their organizations. Female athletes bring to the party all the attributes of a successful business person: discipline, growth mindset, work ethic, collaborative nature, dedication to individual and team success, and much more. 

Join us on April 12 at 5pm MT for an exciting panel that will introduce career opportunities in sports tech to assist athletes in their efforts to plan for and succeed in their next chapter after competition days are over. WiST will introduce the wide array of categories of sports tech businesses for consideration, and highlight all the necessary roles inside each of these businesses, from marketing and sales to IT and product to HR, finance and operations.

The panelists include: 

  • Marilou McFarlane - CEO+Founder, Women in Sports Tech (Moderator)
  • Alysse Sol - CEO Advisory, underdog venture team
  • Kendall Tyson - SVP, Finance and Business Intelligence at Seattle Kraken
  • Mindi Bach - Executive Communications Director, Rakuten

They will share their experiences, career journeys and offer valuable advice on how to explore and pursue opportunities in the sports tech industry. This lively conversation will provide athletes the opportunity to ask questions and network with the panelists in an informal setting. Register via Zoom.
