Amy Huchthausen gives us an update from that last time we spoke with her in 2018. She is now in her ninth year as Commissioner of the America East Conference. In this episode, Amy shares with us her journey from being adopted, to being a student-athlete, and rising to the position of being Commissioner. It was through sports that Amy learned many transferable skills to allow her to be successful in her professional career. Many times in her career, she has been overlooked and it is not uncommon for her to correct stereotypes and remind people that she is “The Commissioner.”

In this episode, Amy challenges women to stop making excuses for their gender and harness the power within to achieve that which anyone can achieve, despite gender. This cycle creates internal barriers for women to advance in senior level management positions.

Hosted by Tolulope Omokore, graduate student, University of Central Florida, DeVos Sports Business Management Program.
