Rising Stars

Rising Stars is a members-only program designed to assist emerging professionals in developing, connecting, and advancing in their careers! If you're a student, intern, graduate assistant, or young professional with less than three years of full-time experience, this is the program for you! 

Joining is easy: First, follow the Rising Stars community. Click here, then select "Follow Community" on the right-hand side. (You must be logged into your Women Leaders account).



Once you've joined our community, you're automatically opted in to receive the Rising Stars monthly newsletter, you'll be invited to Rising Stars Circle calls, you can join our closed Facebook group, and you'll hear from past Rising Stars Award recipients about how they kicked glass and exceeded all expectations! 

Rising Stars Circle Calls

Led by Women Leaders in College Sports staff, Circle calls focus on topics selected by you, our Rising Stars members! These calls, held once a quarter, will spark engaging and passionate conversations, and help you broaden your perspective on relevant industry trends - these are the hot topics every leader should be prepared to address. 

Rising Stars Newsletter

On the third Tuesday of every month, you'll receive the Rising Stars newsletter, which spotlights professional development tips, book recommendations, inspiring songs, and a Rising Star member who's excelled and benefited from our programming. 

Rising Stars Facebook Group

Join our member-only, online forum to access articles, videos, stories, quotes, and continue engaging in impactful conversations. This closed group, monitored by the Women Leaders staff, will provide a space for you to share openly and connect. We want YOU to drive the conversation and tell us how we can best serve you!
