Thirty-five women across the sports industry have been selected for recognition this fall as part of SportsBusiness Journal’s annual Game Changers program.
|Members of the 2015 class of Game Changers gathered at last September’s conference in New York City.
These 35 women will be featured in the Sept. 12 issue of SportsBusiness Journal. They also will be celebrated on Thursday, Sept. 15, in New York at the annual Game Changers: Women in Sports Business conference.
This year’s Game Changers conference will feature panel discussions on a range of subjects that includes the growing role of women in sports business, how organizations are striving for greater diversity in hiring and career advancement, and the next generation of sports business leadership. Featured interviews will be conducted with Lisa Borders, WNBA president; Adrienne Lofton, Under Armour senior vice president of global brand marketing; and Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME partner.
In addition, a special breakfast roundtable will have a discussion on career development: the importance of networking, mentor/mentee roles, and finding opportunities for growth within a company.
