Speakers announced to date are Lisa Cellucci, Sasha Schmid, Omar Brown, Ike Rayford, and Eric Termuende.

“The world of work has changed dramatically in recent years with organizations and employees continuing to navigate how to build a healthy workplace culture in a setting that is in-person and remote,” Tiffany O’Donnell, CEO of Women Lead Change said. “The One Team Summit will bring teams together, women and men, to strategize and hear from experts in team building, communication, and coaching.”

Lisa Cellucci enters her 23rd season as a member of the University of Iowa field hockey team’s coaching staff in 2022-23 and her ninth as head coach. Cellucci, a three-time All-American and member of the U.S. National Team, is the all-time saves leader at Iowa. In her 22 years at Iowa, the Hawkeyes have compiled a 268-163 record and have been consistently ranked in the top 15 of the NFHCA national rankings.

Sasha Schmid is the head coach of the University of Iowa women’s tennis program. In addition to her head coaching duties, she is impacting the Iowa City community and is a champion for women’s athletics. She is the the voice of the HERkys podcast, where she interviews special Hawkeye guests, and coordinated the HERkys’ Hawk Walk, which helped celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Title IX and all those who have been committed to providing equitable access to sports for girls and women.

Omar Brown is senior vice president, people and culture officer for Big Ten Conference. He joined the conference in 2021 in a newly created role in which he drives diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives throughout the conference. Among those initiatives are the Big Ten Equality Coalition – which engages, empowers, and educates student-athletes, administrators, partners, and alumni – and landmark events such as the historic Big Life Series trip to Selma and Montgomery, Alabama, in July 2022.
