After Thoughts A speaker series featuring women at UW-Green Bay

Lean In: 28/346

Less than 10% of the 346 Division I athletic directors are women. Mary Ellen Gillespie is the 28th female selected to lead a Division I athletics department. Mary Ellen will spend time sharing the journey to the “chair” in a very male dominated profession, what it’s like to sit in the “chair” in her first year and will share the importance of the role that Division I athletics plays in both the university and the community.
