Celebrating International Women’s Day at Athletico

by AthleticoLeave a Comment

International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8th, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It is a day about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action.

In celebration of this day, we recognize the Athletico women in leadership roles and what being a leader means to them. Read their answers below:

Diane, Vice President of Clinical Operations/Workers’ Compensation

“Women in leadership must know the difference between assertive and aggressive, passion and emotion. Be true to yourself and never compromise on your integrity. It is important to listen as well as have others listen to women. Important for our ideas to be heard and shared. I recommend “Leaning in” and “Getting after it.” There are sacrifices you make. A strong support system in/out of work is important for continued growth professionally and personally. Leading at Athletico involves empowering others to perform to their potential.”

Payten, Head of Athletic Training Services

“For me, being a leader at Athletico is less about the word leader and more about embodying being a teammate. As an athletic trainer, I grew up in athletics and there is something remarkable about the moment a team pulls together to achieve a goal. And maybe more importantly, there is something beautiful about the moment the team doesn’t achieve a goal but rallies to make the next “game” (or day) better. I get that here. That’s what I love about being on the Athletico team.”
