The Sistahood

The Mentorship Movement

The Sistahood is a network of women of color in the sports industry. The Sistahood started in the athletic training industry, it has since expanded to include coaches, athletes, agents, administrators, educators, entrepreneurs, advocates and students. The collective gives us an opportunity to meet and share our experiences in order to develop a stronger sense of confidence in a rapidly growing industry.

For over 17 years, a breakfast has been held during the same week in the host city as the annual National Athletic Trainers' Association Convention. Starting with only a handful of women, we have expanded our Sistahood to reach hundreds, with even more to come. In the last four years, invitations to local (host city) high school students have been extended allowing us to share our experiences in the sports industry with even more young women.
