— Sarah Reinertsen, Ironman Triathlete, and member of the “Women in Sport” panel at the 2016 AWESOME Symposium.

Charlie Brooks, VP, NA Communications, NIKE, Inc. moderated a conversation among four outstanding women in sport at the 2016 AWESOME Symposium. He set the scene by quoting Nike founder Phil Knight: “At Nike it’s about the athlete. It always has been and always will be.”

In addition to Sarah Reinertsen (left), members of the panel were Debbie Antonelli, Basketball Analyst; Cynthia Cooper-Dyke, Head Coach, USC Women’s Basketball; and Joan Benoit Samuelson, Running, Health and Fitness Clinician and NIKE, Inc. Consultant.

We’ve selected some Words of Wisdom from that conversation that we think apply almost universally to women advancing in their careers.
