WIS WIN FOR CHRISTINA!
Gratitude is one of our favorite practices. Today we’re giving a shout out to Christina Froelich to say congratulations on over a full-year of working in the soccer industry.
Christina you crushed it! Congrats on your WIS Win and breaking into the industry. We’re so proud that through WIS’ network connections and advice you were able to “break into the soccer space,” and we absolutely can’t wait to see what you do next. ⚡️ #GreatNotGrateful #WISWin22 #WomeninSoccer
Christina got stuck in on her networking journey to find a job in the game. Jumping into the WIS community and reaching out to members working in a variety of fields and roles gave her eclectic insights that all attributed to her getting her first job in soccer. Christina shared, “[They] took time out of their days to talk with me about what to do in the interim to help make positive change in soccer, connected me with others in their network, and gave me resume tips.”
“My first year as a woman in soccer, specifically in the digital and social arena, has been life changing. What’s been the most special is seeing my personal touch and my perspective in the storytelling of this game we love.” – Christina Froelich
Our community platform and Slack workspace is dedicated to connecting members who are aspiring to work in the beautiful game to leaders, experts and allies actively influencing the industry. You’ll also find active recruiters looking for their newest team member. We want people historically marginalized for their identity to have the chance to put themselves out there in a safe space and achieve their dreams. It’s why we exist!
Since breaking into the industry, Christina has worked her way to earning a position with Major League Soccer:
“From the NWSL to MLS, I’m passionate about making soccer in America more equitable and I am lucky to be surrounded by many folks who feel the same and support me in my efforts. The best is yet to come!”
Together we win, as our Goal Five friends love to say – and we couldn’t agree more. We can’t wait to see what’s to come for Christina and members abound.
