Welcome to the LEAD Community!
Over the next few months, we will be sharing more about the first-ever LEAD Sports Summit taking place September 2-4, 2017 in Austin, Texas.
As a part of the LEAD community, you will receive exclusive content from our all-star team of speakers and be the first to know about all of the exciting updates we have planned, including an e-book from LEAD Founder Kara Lynn Joyce and the announcement of our special guest speaker.
Elizabeth Beisel is a 3-time Olympian and 2016 Olympic Team Captain. At the 2016 Golden Goggle Awards, Elizabeth won the inaugural Leadership Award, voted on by her peers. She qualified for her first Olympic Team at 15 years old and has been able to successfully navigate her career from a rookie to a team leader and captain.
As part of the LEAD Summit, Elizabeth will join Kara Lynn Joyce in sessions focused on leadership skills and team building exercises. She will kick off the event with a special keynote speech at the participants' welcome dinner.
Empowering young girls and women is a movement we strive to take part in each and every day. In the Leadership Corner, we spotlight important articles and other stories on girls and women who inspire us.
