Super Bowl LI

On the Friday and Saturday before Super Bowl LI, the NFL took a break from football to host the NFL Women’s Summit, an event designed to teach teenage girls how to achieve their goals, dream big, and prepare for life’s challenges. Featuring a slew of speakers, including Aly Raisman and Simone Biles, Tony Dungy and Ron Rivera, not to mention NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the Women’s Summit worked to empower the next generation of female leaders. Listen to what some of them had to say.
