Network for Advancing Athletes (NAA) 2017 Women’s Symposium:

 “How Sport Mirrors Life: Lessons from Pro Women on facing challenge,” presented by Pioneer.

Friday, March 3rd from 5:00pm to 7:00pm – Westlake Village Studios

Join pro athletes and industry insiders to hear what they’ve learned about facing down challenges as women in professional cycling. You may be surprised to learn that they are actually very human and share many of the same insecurities as the rest of us. At our NAA Women’s Symposium, you’ll get to hear how they learned to tackle their fears and failures to ultimately succeed. Whether you race or ride for fun, we promise you’ll learn some valuable tips from these ladies as they share personal stories of their trials, tribulations and triumphs.  Many of the challenges we face are universal, and what these women have learned in professional sport can help empower you in your daily life. We hope you’ll join us!

Featuring Special Guests: Alison Powers, two-time National Time Trial Champion; Kathryn Bertine, filmmaker of “Half the Road”; Brenda Lyons, with Pioneer Cycle Sports; Ayesha McGowan, soon to be the first African-American female professional cyclist; and Sarah Lamb, pro race mechanic.

Open to the general public and complimentary, our symposium offers a chance to dialogue with pro level female cyclists and industry professionals. Take advantage of a great opportunity to meet our guest NAA mentors in person and hear key lessons they learned while navigating the path from beginner cyclist to professional. Not only are these athletes top performers, they are also some of the kindest, most approachable women you’ll meet. Join us! Donations to the NAA are greatly appreciated and will also be accepted at the door. Light refreshments will be provided. Please register by Tuesday, February 28.
