“Woke! Now What?” is a question we should all be asking ourselves. In the era of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, health inequities exposed through COVID-19, and a tense political landscape, our student-athletes clearly have made their voice heard. Through protests, institutional demands, marches, refusing to play, and holding institutions accountable, our student-athletes are woke! But where do we go from here?
If we truly care for our student-athletes, we must position them to further develop in ways that will promote not only their well-being, but the well-being of their peers, families, and communities. We must ensure that they have the practical leadership skills to be effective change agents on campus and beyond. This year’s Summit will offer a leadership certificate for our student-athletes, while we work with professionals to becomes strong allies for the students served. Woke? Now What!
Registration is now open for our 8th annual Black Student-Athlete Summit, taking place virtually on Jan. 6-8, 2021. Please submit your presentation ideas via our Google doc found on our Call for Proposals page.
