Donna Lopiano to Resign

The Women's Sports Foundation has announced that Donna Lopiano will resign as CEO after 15 years in the position. "Lopiano led the Foundation during a time of incredible growth, including a ten-fold increase in operating budget and staff size, establishing an award-winning Web site and most importantly, expanding opportunities for millions of girls and women in sport."

USA Today reports that she has agreed to be a consultant to WSF for three years. Other than that, Dr. Lopiano has not announced her future plans, but has indicated that she could seek out her next challenge in academia or the non-profit sector.

A proven leader in both contexts (Lopiano was the women's AD at Texas for 18 years before taking over at WSF) she will bring invaluable expertise and experience to the table wherever she decides to go.
