Featured Sessions

#261 Do You Have a Pencil?

Brittany Wagner, a nationally respected athletic academic counselor and star of the hit Netflix documentary series, Last Chance U, will discuss how she has guided student-athletes to academic and professional success.

Throughout her career, Brittany has helped many young men who found themselves at a crossroads dig deep and move beyond personal failure to find success despite run-ins with the law, extreme poverty, abandonment, and often a complete lack of academic preparedness. Recognized for her compassion, encouragement, and no-nonsense attitude, Brittany has served as mentor, mother, and disciplinarian to the individuals behind some of college football’s most inspiring success stories. She launched her own company, Ten Thousand Pencils, to aid at-risk youth by working individually with high school and college-level administrators, counselors, and teachers to help them build relationships with these students and better understand and support their emotional, social, and academic needs. Her upcoming book, Next Chance You: Tools, Tips and Tough Love for Bringing Your A-Game to Life, will show readers that even when they think they have failed and all hope is lost, every day offers a new chance to get up, start over, and seize the opportunities that come their way.

For women of color, the numbers are particularly unfair, with only 3% comprised of minorities. Join us for an inspiring upskilling session on career advancement for women.
