Episode 58: Gloria Nevarez

Women Leaders Podcast

On today’s episode of the Women Leaders Podcast, Patti is joined by commissioner of the West Coast Conference Gloria Nevarez. Gloria has a great story, with broad experiences. After earning her JD and starting her athletics career in compliance at San Jose State, she went on to other schools where she added “legal” and professor to her titles, before pivoting from campus work to a conference office. She also moved from a basketball conference to a large and successful Power 5 football university, just 1 of the many non-traditional and hard-to-make transitions she has navigated so successfully in her career. Listen in to learn the importance of national committee work “not dialing it in” and the importance in giving 100% to your current job and committing to leaving it better than you found it. She gives so many tips, and she NUMBERS them, so be ready to soak it up! Enjoy, and remember, We Are Women Leaders! Head to womenleadersincollegesports.org for more about us and to become a member!
