As part of its ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, the NFL will host its fifth annual Women's Careers in Football Forum virtually from Feb. 24-25. The forum will connect 40 women with leaders in professional football to network and build relationships in the areas of coaching, scouting and football operations.

Over the course of the two-day event, participants will attend panel discussions, breakout sessions and networking activities with executives, coaches, industry experts and hiring managers, including the NFL and Women Leaders in College Sports. Most participants currently work in entry-level college football roles. The forum will give them the chance to learn more about where their experiences can lead them in professional football.

Since 2017, the forum has helped develop a more diverse talent pipeline by connecting women with career opportunities in football, 118 of which have emerged over the past four years.

Featured speakers include NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Jane Skinner Goodell, NFL Chief Football Administrative Officer Dawn Aponte, as well as three club owners, seven head coaches and seven general managers listed below.
