"This is more than a mere name change. It is a brand evolution that reflects the impressive growth and impact our organization continues to have on women leaders beyond the collegiate athletics space. The advancement of women’s sports in terms of participation, investment and attention is at historic highs. The time is right for our organization to broaden our impact in order to engage, inspire and develop women in leadership at all levels of sports and society at large."
