Chris Plonsky is a true trailblazer! She’s the director of
women’s athletics at the University of Texas and a past president
of Women Leaders. She’s spent more than three decades working in
intercollegiate athletics, having started as a media relations
assistant and spending the majority of her years at one of the
biggest brands in college sports, UT. As the long-time women’s
athletic director, she has hired and fired coaches, been a part of
several national championships in numerous sports, and was a key
figure in getting the Longhorn Network started. She has also worked
with and for many of the industry greats, like Donna Lopiano and
Dave Gavitt, and she can still rattle off names and dates like the
Chris is a Longhorn through and through, and her deep passion for developing student-athletes and her belief in the importance of higher education, is inspiring.
