The Women’s Careers in Football Forum helps the NFL identify qualified women to join its next generation of leaders.

Consisting of two days of panel discussions, presentations and breakout sessions, the Forum inspires, educates and connects qualified female candidates for positions in football as coaches, officials, scouts, athletic trainers and more.

“We are actively expanding opportunities for women by identifying and developing qualified individuals as part of the NFL’s inclusion efforts,” said Vincent. “Hosting these events at Pro Bowl provides us the chance to celebrate women who play the game and to assist them by providing knowledge, tools and resources to pursue careers in the sport of professional football.”

As part of the NFL’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and increasing opportunities for women in football, the Forum provides women with information on how to either begin or transition to a career in football.

“This is one step in changing the culture of hiring managers within the organization to show them that females can be very successful, and to explain to them the benefits of having gender diversity within your organization,” said Samantha Rapoport, NFL director of football development.
