Diversity Spotlight Recipient - May 2016

The Centennial Conference is the recipient of the May Division III Diversity Spotlight Initiative. Bryn Mawr College, a conference member, recently hosted the 2016 Snell-Shillingford Symposium. The weekend allowed 20 female student-athlete representatives and coaches to participate in sessions designed to empower women in the coaching profession and to encourage them to take up the legacy of those who have gone before them. Participants in the symposium learned about mentoring, team culture and motivation, decision making, and interviewing. Click here to read the full story.

To submit for consideration for the Diversity Spotlight Initiative, please email Louise McCleary, with a brief statement (no more than 500 words) as to why your institution or conference office deserves to be the spotlight recipient. The nomination deadline is June 21.
