2nd Annual Women’s Leadership Luncheon

It’s that time of year again – the Oracle Netsuite Open welcoming the pro players to town and for the second time, Aisling Blake and Lauren Xaba will be hosting their Women’s Leadership Luncheon.

This year we have writer, clinical and sports psychologist Dr. Joan Steidinger joining us for a ‘Fireside Chat’. Attendees will receive a free copy of Dr. Joan’s book and we will discuss, among other issues; gender inequality in the workplace and the drive towards parity which is fitting as, for the first time in this event’s history, both women and men will earn the same prize money!

All proceeds will benefit female student-athletes in the SquashDrive and Squash on Track programs.

Women’s Leadership Luncheon: The Role of Sport in Professional Careers

Aisling Blake of Squash Zone and Lauren Xaba of Squash Drive are excited to host the Inaugural Bay Area Squash Women’s Leadership Luncheon on Friday, September 28th from 11:30am – 1:30pm. It will be a panel based discussion with lunch before, where they will explore the role of sport in a women’s professional career. We have some amazing panelist, including Courtney Sabo, co-founder at PadPiper, Berkeley Revenaugh, Independent Contractor and Sarah Jane Perry (current world no. 8 squash player).

Our aim is to donate proceeds to a scholarship fund for young girls (from SquashDrive and Squash On Track) to attend female enrichment camps during the summer. Click here to sign up: when you purchase a ticket a portion of it will be tax deductible and you will also get access to the afternoon session of matches at the Bay Club SF.

Best, Lauren and Aisling
