There is currently no other platform in the sport industry that allows successful sport professionals to provide targeted, high-level coaching and mentorship to future generations of female leaders. Sure, many companies offer in-house mentorship or career coaching, but the problem still remains: how do we get young female sport professionals into those organizations initially? How do we ensure that their hard work as student-athletes during college leads them to a successful career in the business of sport? How do we ensure that companies have qualified, eager, and driven women in their candidate pool for internships and entry-level positions?
The answer is through mentorship. Mentors have the unique opportunity to provide 1:1 insight, coaching, and guidance to help emerging female professionals prepare for a career in sport business. Sports on the Lips acts as the liaison - connecting mentors with mentees who have similar career ambitions, or shared connections in the past (similar sport, overcoming similar challenges or barriers to entry). SOTL is the mentorship match-maker. We qualify all mentors AND all mentees - we want to make the best use of your time as a busy professional, and we want to ensure that our mentees get the most out of the experience. And we provide
support throughout the mentorship process, guaranteeing that your questions are answered, your mentee is held accountable, and you both feel that the experience was a valuable use of
your time and energy. Mentors are asked to help mentees get their “first touch” work experience in the form of a referral for an internship or entry-level position. As a mentor, you get to pre-qualify your mentee as a possible addition to your organization, or for one of your colleagues in the industry.
