Game Changers, which debuted in 2011, recognizes women in the industry who have broad, deep and varied responsibilities and who are contributing to the success of the industry in myriad ways.
These 35 women will be featured in the Sept. 11 issue of SportsBusiness Journal. They also will be celebrated on Thursday, Sept. 14, in New York at the annual Game Changers: Women in Sports Business conference.
This year’s Game Changers conference will feature panel discussions on investment, growth and challenges facing women’s sports; trailblazers in sports; diversity, technology and intelligence in the workplace; negotiation tactics; and lessons in leadership. The conference also will include featured interviews with Wendy Clark, DDB North America CEO; Christine Driessen, ESPN executive vice president and chief financial officer; Kim Pegula, owner and CEO of Pegula Sports and Entertainment and co-owner of the Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres; and Linda Yaccarino, NBCUniversal chairman of advertising sales and client partnerships.
In addition, a special breakfast roundtable will have a discussion on storytelling in sports: how to grow professionally and personally.
