OU Law alumna Nicole Lynn (’15) has been featured in Glamour Magazine’s “Women of the Year” Series as one of the Women Changing Sports in 2019.
In April, she became the third woman – and the first black woman ever – to represent a first-round NFL Draft pick.
In the article, Lynn talks about the excitement of making history – while also acknowledging that for women in the business of sports, there’s still much work to be done. She also shares her hopes and goals for herself and other women and minorities in the industry. From the article:
Beyond the star clients and the record-breaking deals, Lynn’s number-one goal is to make sure that she keeps the door open for other women. “I hope I’m known as someone who is bringing as many people along on the ride with her as she can,” she says, “especially women and minorities.” Anytime one of her players needs to hire someone, be it a financial adviser or a marketing rep, she makes sure a minority candidate is first to interview. “If you look at my clientele, almost 95% of their personal teams are made up of extremely talented and diverse individuals,” she says. “That is the bigger victory: getting [the industry] used to people that look like me.”
