Welcome to the NFL Women’s Summit

Join us in the huddle to advance women in sport

At the culmination of a year in which we have celebrated the history and future of NFL football in the lead-up to Super Bowl 50, the league is paying tribute to the critical role sports have played in the lives of female leaders past and present and raising public awareness of the role they can play in developing the next generation of leaders.

The NFL Women's Summit: "In the Huddle to Advance Women in Sport" will bring together prominent leaders from sports, government, media and a variety of other fields—all of whom believe in the power of sports to support the future success of young women both personally and professionally. Through their experience and insights, the summit aims to reinforce the power of sports and to encourage broad support—from men and women alike—for girls' athletic participation.
