December 14 – 15: Second Annual BreakThrough Summit

With Many Sports Paused, Women Coaches and Leaders Will Come Together Digitally for the Second Annual BreakThrough Summit

Hudl and WeCOACH are part­ner­ing again to host the sec­ond annu­al BreakThrough Summit, December 14 – 15, 2020. Women in sports face unique chal­lenges, includ­ing pay inequal­i­ty, gen­der stereo­typ­ing, objec­ti­fi­ca­tion and lack of rep­re­sen­ta­tion and vis­i­bil­i­ty. Hudl and WeCOACH are com­mit­ted to improv­ing that landscape.

BreakThrough Summit is a free, dig­i­tal lead­er­ship event that will bring togeth­er top women coach­es, admin­is­tra­tors and sports indus­try influ­encers to share their expe­ri­ences and empow­er oth­ers to break through gen­der and social bar­ri­ers. This year’s event will be big­ger, bet­ter and bold­er with a two-day online event fea­tur­ing more top­ics, more speak­ers, more sports and more action-ori­ent­ed dia­logues. It will cel­e­brate, devel­op and inspire women in sports across all levels.

We’re com­mit­ted to help­ing devel­op great coach­es and lead­ers because we know these are the peo­ple inspir­ing ath­letes to real­ize the best ver­sions of them­selves,” said David Graff, Hudl CEO. We’re con­stant­ly focused on increas­ing diver­si­ty with­in our own doors and in the sports land­scape. Partnering with an impor­tant orga­ni­za­tion like WeCOACH to deliv­er the annu­al BreakThrough Summit is a pil­lar ini­tia­tive for increas­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ties for women in sports. 

During a glob­al pan­dem­ic where sports are paused, I believe the role of the coach and team is more impor­tant than ever for keep­ing young ath­letes engaged while they deal with the men­tal stress and anx­i­ety of the times. BreakThrough Summit is anoth­er chance for women coach­es to stay ener­gized know­ing the impact and respon­si­bil­i­ty they have for their athletes.” 

This year’s event will be head­lined by two-time nation­al cham­pi­on women’s bas­ket­ball coach Muffet McGraw, and return­ing as emcee, ESPN bas­ket­ball ana­lyst LaChina Robinson. Session top­ics will include nav­i­gat­ing COVID-19, social change, men­tal health, lead­er­ship, diver­si­ty and inclu­sion, and sup­port­ing women in sports.

Our syn­er­gis­tic part­ner­ship with Hudl and align­ment in val­ues is some­thing incred­i­bly spe­cial. In year two of BreakThrough Summit, we rec­og­nized a need and col­lec­tive­ly came togeth­er to pro­vide a plat­form for more inten­tion­al dia­logue on crit­i­cal top­ics, such as men­tal health and social change,” said Megan Kahn, WeCOACH CEO. It gives our audi­ence an unprece­dent­ed oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in two days of learn­ing and inspi­ra­tion for free. This is a pow­er­ful tes­ta­ment to our mutu­al com­mit­ments to women in the coach­ing profession.”
