Game Changers 2013
Published September 9, 2013, Page 1A
Making a difference in the industry.
Developing new approaches.
For these reasons and more, we recognize the executives in this section as our 2013 Game Changers.
This is the third year we’ve produced our Game Changers publication. The goal once again, as it’s been each year, is to shine a light on a group of women — some you might know, others you might be reading about for the first time — who are contributing to the success of the industry, doing so in myriad ways.
Of course, Game Changers is not the only occasion on which we focus on successful women in sports. Our Forty Under 40 and Champions programs both serve to tell stories of women having an impact on the industry. The influence of women in sports can be seen in our news stories on a regular basis, as well.
Our hope with Game Changers is that by providing a dedicated section for these women and their stories there is a recognition of their achievements and successes while also spotlighting their paths taken — realizing that shared stories and relationship development can inspire achievements and successes for others.
For this publication, in addition to telling their stories, each Game Changer completed a survey aimed at getting to know more about her. Each woman also was asked to provide a photograph that showed her holding, or pictured with, something of significance to her. Some women selected elements from their work environment. Others looked to family or other outside interests. Each selection was unique.
These are the Game Changers for 2013.
