An event series providing women the opportunity to engage with inspiring professionals and celebrate the power of sport in our community. 

Columbus has a rich history hosting USA Volleyball events and as host to the USA Volleyball Open National Championships in May, we are honored to continue the tradition. Join us on May 22 with speakers Dr. Cecile Reynaud and Joan Powell, trailblazers and change-makers in the sport. The conversation will focus on the importance of women and girls in sport, the evolution of volleyball and how communities can be part of the discussion, whether it’s on or off the court.  

Dr. Reynaud is a former women’s volleyball head coach at Florida State University where she is currently a research associate for sport management. She was instrumental in the creation of SafeSport initiatives for USA Volleyball. Powell, a former volleyball athlete who led her team to three USA Volleyball Open National Championship titles and was selected as All-American five times by the national governing body, was the recent recipient of the Harold T. Friermood Award, the highest honor given by USA Volleyball.
