SafeHaven is excited to announce Troy Vincent as the keynote speaker for the 2018 Legacy of Women Luncheon. Vincent, the NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations, is considered a national leader as an advocate against domestic violence and sexual assault and will share his personal story of growing up in a home with domestic violence and his lifelong commitment to ending domestic violence and sexual assault.
In his current role, Vincent informs the business of the NFL through the unique lens of his previous roles as a player, a player’s union president and the Senior Vice President of Player Engagement. He holds a broad range of responsibilities for the business of football, including game analytics, accountability, integrity of the game, development and growth and policies and procedure relating to NFL games, including protecting players from unnecessary risk.
In 2016, Vincent received the Call to Men Award for Institutional Change for his efforts to raise awareness and prevent violence against girls and women. He received the 2015 Humanitarian Award: Voice Over Violence, for his work to build healthy relationships and communities free from sexual, domestic and interpersonal violence.
A long-time promoter of the character and leadership values that football contributes to society, Vincent is the only player in history to have received the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, NFL Players’ Association Byron Whizzer White Award, Sporting News #1 Good Guy and the NFL Athletes in Action Bart Starr Award.
2018 marks the 26th annual Legacy of Women Luncheon. Scheduled for Oct. 18 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, the event honors 10 exceptional Tarrant County Women for their leadership, impact and commitment in our community.
