Women Motivational Speaker: Mary Alice Hill
Being an Olympic trainer takes patience, skill and strength of character. To be a successful at that level requires someone the athletes can trust and respect. You must have personal discipline and an unimpeachable character to demand and receive adherence to the rigorous program you have designed.
An athletic director is someone charged with providing structure and guidance for the athletes for whom they are indirectly responsible. They are also an administrator responsible for overseeing the work of all coaches and athletic department staff. They are also responsible for managing the athletics department's budget.
As a woman leader in charge of sports education for athletes of both sexes, she had to be a model of fairness and a font of wisdom. Women in this role are often held to a higher standard. It's an awesome responsibility which requires superior administrative skill, empathy, good judgment and fairness.
Ms. Hill became nationally known when she won a Title IX suit against Colorado State University over sex discrimination in athletics. The men's athletics budget was $3 million while the budget for women's athletics was only $5,500. That landmark case changed the sports landscape for women in the United States.
