TSAE has announced the keynote speakers for its first Women’s Summit, which will take place October 25 at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin.
MJ Hegar, a former US Air Force Combat Search and Rescue helicopter pilot, will kick off the day by revealing how to be a catalyst for change, be it in your career, at home or at a higher level.
A Purple Heart recipient who challenged a discriminatory military policy and won women the right to serve on the front lines for the first time in history, Hegar is also the author of “Shoot Like a Girl,” which tells of her time serving in Afghanistan, the lessons she learned about leadership and teamwork throughout her life, and how those experiences are bringing about change in the world.
Hegar tells audiences that to bring about change, they have to first have credibility, demonstrate the skills required, and have experienced and a stake in the fight.
During the luncheon program, hear from World Triathlon Champion Siri Lindley, who will share her journey from struggling with self-doubt to the top of the podium. Lindley also spoke at this summer’s ASAE Annual Meeting, where she talked about setting a seemingly impossible goal for herself, overcoming her doubts and fears, and finding her “why.”
Now retired from triathlon, Lindley coaches other women in the sport, including three-time Kona World Champion Mirinda Carfrae and six-time Iron distance champion Rebekah “Bek” Keat.
Today, she teaches others how to become the fearless leader in their own lives.
Breakout sessions will take place throughout the day and will focus on topics such as C-Suite Challenges for Women, Leading with Emotional Intelligence, Lessons Learned: Young Me vs. Me Now and more.
