Texas Women’s Foundation will present its 37th Annual Luncheon. The event will highlight Allyson Felix, who reigns as the most decorated American Track & Field Athlete of all time after winning her bronze and gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. This year’s event is themed “Transforming Communities.”
A world record holder, Felix holds 13 global titles, 20 championship medals and 11 Olympic medals. Off the track, she is a fierce advocate for maternity rights for all women and founder and president of Saysh, which designs and manufactures athletic-inspired footwear made for and by women.
Dallas Mavericks President and CEO Cynt Marshall will serve as the moderator. Felix will participate in a moderated conversation discussing her work transforming communities across the world, fighting inequities by leading initiatives advocating for maternal policies, and providing access to education and helping the next generation of mothers and athletes. Felix may be retiring from competitive athletics, but she is amplifying her voice for women’s rights and launching her new brand for women, led by women, which attendees will hear more about at the luncheon.
