“The First Woman of Hockey,” Manon Rhéaume debuted with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1992, becoming the first and still the only female to play in an NHL game. She was also the first female to sign a contract to play professional hockey. As a member of Team Canada, Manon helped lead her team to win a Silver Medal at the 1998 Olympics. Now she’s sharing her story of the risks she took and barriers that were broken to become a pioneer in a male-dominated industry. Rhéaume brings audiences essential tools on how to overcome obstacles in your own career, engage men as allies, and step out of your comfort zone to succeed. Having been told to “get used to it” over and over again, Rhéaume had the odds stacked against her. This never stopped her from following her dreams and now she encourages you to do the same in both business and in life.
