Women Leaders Podcast, Episode 68: Violet Palmer

Presented by:

On the most recent episode of the Women Leaders Podcast, Patti Phillips is joined by Violet Palmer on the LIVE podcast from the 2019 Women Leaders National Convention in Phoenix. Violet is the first woman, the first African-American woman, AND the first openly gay woman to referee in the NBA.
Violet, who, because she is such a trailblazer, is featured on Makers, shares so many insights about her epic journey to becoming the first. Until Violet came along, the ranks of NBA officials were  definitely a “boys club.” Listen in to hear how Violet navigated that, overcame that, and how she became one of the most well-respected and successful referees, male or female,  in the league. She has the code to the “boys club” and she shares it with us. 
She also shares how to disarm men when you are the only woman and how to use being the only woman as an advantage
Violet is a force for change, and shares so much inspiration in this really fun conversation. Enjoy, and remember, we are Women Leaders!
