WASHINGTON D.C., February 25, 2021 – Altius Sports Partners (ASP), a name, image and likeness (NIL) advisory and education firm, is proud to announce a new partnership with Women Leaders in College Sports (Women Leaders), the premier leadership organization that develops, advances and connects women in college sports, to provide informative and educational content surrounding college NIL.

The partnership kicks off on Friday, March 5 with a Live Chat (2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT) focused on preparing for NIL rules changes.

ASP offers its partners a team of industry leading voices to help guide and educate all stakeholders on the impacts and opportunities related to NIL rule changes. By collaborating with ASP, the Kansas City, Missouri based Women Leaders and its more than 3,500 members nationwide will be well-positioned to successfully navigate the NIL policy scheduled to go into effect in 2021.

“We are impressed with the knowledge and expertise that Altius Sports Partners brings to the current Name, Image and Likeness conversation, and look forward to facilitating dialog and education with the Altius team for our members,” said Patti Phillips, CEO of Women Leaders in College Sports.

The expert-led ASP team will collaborate with Women Leaders to deliver educational programming for their members and the industry with a primary focus on empowering women in college athletics to lead the way in NIL.

ASP CEO Casey Schwab stated, "This new partnership provides Altius an opportunity to share our expertise with members of a premier organization in the industry. Through our collaborative programming, the Women Leaders membership will be equipped to embrace NIL rules changes on their campuses. The Women Leaders mission of elevating and empowering women and diverse voices in collegiate athletics aligns with ASP's values, and we're excited for our work together."
