OUR MISSION

The Winning Edge Leadership Academy is devoted to developing the professional potential of young women and minorities in sports business.

With the help of an influential network, we mentor, expose, and provide hands-on experiences, financial and cognitive resources to help establish a successful career in sports. Our goal is to assist students in reaching their professional fulfillment--ensuring they are capable of representing their team outside the lines.

“I can honestly say that without the mentors I have in my life, I would not have had the opportunity to work with the legendary Pat Summitt or had the courage to take the risk of applying for my dream job at ESPN. Being an only child with no big time connections or spectacular athletic career I relied and still rely on my mentors to help identify opportunities and open doors that give me the confidence to believe that I belong here, wherever here may be. I know without them I would be lost especially in this sports industry where it’s not the grades you make but the hands you shake that make the difference. As a veteran I know a mission can only be accomplished when a unit works together so now I look to create my own unit to accomplish the mission of providing support to students wanting to achieve their goals.”
— CORINNE M., CO-FOUNDER
