Over 25 successful female professionals from diverse fields including medicine, engineering, communications, social work and business attended the event to share their valuable perspective with over 140 of UMKC female student-athletes. The goal of the event was not to pair student-athletes up with a professional that has the job they are seeking to obtain one day, but instead for them to learn as much as they can from the successful female individuals that attended.  The professionals shared their experiences, advice, hardships, successes, and realities of being a female in the workplace. – Read More
