Daring Athletes: Embracing Courageous Leadership in the Age of Toughness

Tuesday Oct 29, 2019 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM | Hogg Memorial Auditorium

The Center for Sports Leadership and Innovation (CSLi) at The University of Texas at Austin is proud to announce a very special conversation with five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown on Tuesday, October 29 at 6:30 p.m. on the campus in Austin, Texas. 


In the discussion with CSLi founder and executive director Daron K. Roberts, Brown will discuss the tools that athletes can use to be their bravest, most authentic selves. As a UT alumna and longtime sports fan, she will share what she has learned from and about the world of sports and how athletes can pierce the “toughness" veil. For fans and parents, she'll discuss how we can create safe spaces for athletes to become courageous leaders and shift the dialogue around what it means to be a courageous athlete. Though the conversation is centered around sports leadership, Brown’s message is applicable to all leaders beyond just athletes.
