Lean In with the 99ers

I’m a HUGE fan of empowerment. I’m a huge fan of positive role models. And, being a father of a middle school daugher, I even more of a bigger fan of women doing positive things that dramatically shift society.

That’s a big statement, but the following video lives up to that hype.

Recently, Jessica Bennett from Lean In (yes the same Lean In organization inspired by the Sheryl Sandberg book…) sat down with 3 of the well-known and respected star athletes from the 1999 USA Women’s Soccer Team – Mia Hamm, Brandi Chastain, and Julie Foudy.

Watch the fun, insightful video interview and see some of the mindset these ladies had at the time (back in 1999) and even now moving forward as to how they continue to remain on the forefront of empowerment and positive role model reinforcement for our young lady leaders of tomorrow.
