San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon, the first full-time female coach in NBA history, will share her experiences breaking gender and generational barriers at the NEW Leadership Summit 2016, Sept. 28-30. More than 1,100 executives and emerging leaders from the retail, consumer goods and services industry are expected to attend the three-day Summit at the Omni Resort Orlando at ChampionsGate.
As the NEW Summit’s closing keynote speaker, WNBA All-Star Hammon will offer strategies for tapping into the passion, commitment and confidence it takes to win at work and life. She’ll share her insights on the importance of team building and the role mentors and sponsors have in creating opportunities for women.
"It’s not just about me pioneering,” Hammon, ESPN’s 2014 Woman of the Year, has said. "Because someone pioneered for me.”
Hammon played for the New York Liberty and San Antonio Silver Stars and was an All-American basketball player at Colorado State University and a member of the Russian National Team at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
The NEW Summit will also feature feminist Michael Kimmel, who will discuss strategies for engaging men in efforts to achieve gender equality; 16 breakout sessions for leaders at every level; an executive panel discussion on ambition and competition in the workplace; and our NEW Leadership Academy supersession.
