Sports, Women & Data: Reviving Your (Team) Spirit

Let’s face it, the New Year, while a fresh start, has also been tough. Women wear so much weight on their shoulders, especially now ━ and one’s personal well-being, mental health, and spirit are not always top of mind.

Athletes from all walks of life recently competed in the Olympic Winter Games Beijing 2022 ━ and having support on their mental health & wellness journey was such an important part of their success. 

Whether on the slopes, or in the office ━ reviving one’s (team) spirit is a must as we reflect back and celebrate Team USA. 

Join our panel of power-women as they share their stories, centered on these themes:

  • Courageously pursuing goals and dreams
  • Daily habits, mantras, and routines
  • Prioritizing mental health
  • Leveraging data in their careers

Don't miss our March 9th event, Behind the Viz: Meet the Data Rock Stars Who Built the Team USA Dashboards.
