Women Leaders in Sports Podcast

Oct 6, 2019

On the most recent episode of the Women Leaders Podcast, Patti Phillips is joined by Women Leaders past president and the University of San Francisco Director of Athletics Joan McDermott.

When it comes to navigating your career, Joan is an expert. Between her career as a coach and then college administrator, her husband’s career as a baseball coach, AND her six children, Joan has beautifully mastered how to balance it all, and has some great tips for working moms.

She has always been passionate about the student-athlete experience and providing girls and women with opportunities she never had. Joan believes a huge key to leadership is building and maintaining relationships, which we 100% agree with.

Listen in to learn the importance of male champions, how and why Joan transitioned to Division l after spending 18 years as a Dll athletic director, and how she landed her dream job at her alma mater, the University of San Francisco.
