Women Leaders Podcast, Episode 101: Cathy Engelbert

In this podcast, Patti Phillips shares a highly anticipated conversation with the commissioner of the WNBA, Cathy Engelbert. An innovative and people-first leader, Cathy has made an immediate and significant impact on the WNBA in her first 18-months as Commissioner. Not only did she quickly and successfully negotiate a groundbreaking Collective Bargaining Agreement, but also executed an entire WNBA season in the “Wubble.” 
Despite ascending to the highest levels of leadership but never chasing a title or position, Cathy aspired to LEAD and shares how her previous 33-year career at Deloitte, 4 of those years as CEO, impacted much of her leadership philosophy today. 
During this conversation, Cathy talks about how doing small things of symbolic value to build trust has been crucial to starting her role as a new leader during the pandemic. She opens up about how WNBA plyers used their platform to drive social justice issues during a time when our country has been plagued by racial unrest and how the orange hoodie transformed into a symbol of more than just women’s basketball!
