We do this by fostering an inclusive community of women+ athletes who have the competencies and drive that make them proven winners in academics, sports, work, and life. We are a professional networking community specifically curated by and for women+ collegiate athletes. Through connection, education, coaching, and empowerment, we prepare elite, diverse female athletes for successful careers. Ruth creates both an internal community of women+ athletes and builds external relationships with companies committed to advancing women+ at work.
The Ruth CommuniTeam®
We are the Ruth CommuniTeam® - a powerful network of current, recently graduated, and former women+ collegiate athletes.
Ruth was built by female athletes for female athletes. As athletes, we know the power teams possess to drive and embolden individuals. As women+, we know the value of our voices and power to drive equitable change. The Ruth CommuniTeam® connects women+ with resources, community and a solid foundation necessary for succeeding in the corporate world.
”I believe that in order for organizations and communities to thrive across the globe, women need to be in decision maker roles. Ruth strives to make this happen by exposing women to more opportunities using sports experiences as the foundation for their leadership talent.”
What People Are Saying
Investment Banking and Professional Athlete
“The Ruth CommuniTeam® makes a difference in helping female athletes succeed so they are not left figuring it out all on their own.”
“As an athlete a lot of my time has been dedicated to practices and games instead of jobs and internships. Sometimes the qualities and skills I’ve obtained from sports don’t easily translate onto a paper résumé. Team Ruth’s network made it possible for me to find a job that I could balance with my professional hockey career, they provided me a credible reference, and advocated for my talents. Team Ruth was instrumental for me to connect with the Jacobs Institute in Buffalo and meet new physicians and coworkers who I believe will have a huge impact to mentor me on my journey to my career in the medical field.”
