“Women who succeed in sport: redrawing boundaries”

Tuesday 27 June at 7 pm, EDHEC campus

16, rue du 4 Septembre, 75002 Paris 
and via streaming 

 

From elite athletes to holders of strategic positions in the sporting world, the daily roles of some women are redrawing boundaries: from sport to business, the leap is not insurmountable!

 

Elite athletes nowadays have understood the importance of promoting themselves to professionals from the business world both for their sporting career and for their later transition to the working world. With atypical profiles, elite athletes offer significant advantages for companies. How to manage your career and make a successful transition: some examples to follow.

The world of elite sport is a microcosm in which, even more than in business, prejudices can overshadow skills. Just like female top executives, female athletes, who are present in increasing numbers in sports clubs and federations, must try even harder to prove they can succeed. What are the keys to their success?

Being a part of the sporting community is a life choice as well as a career choice. What advantages does the sporting world offer in today’s economic climate?
