WISE Through the Years
In 1993, a small group of women saw an opportunity to address a real need facing females working in sports business — career support. From an informal gathering in New York City that year, Women in Sports and Events has established itself as the leading resource for females in the industry, empowering women across North America with the professional network, tools and advocacy to excel.
From establishing the prestigious WISE Women of the Year Award to expanding chapters to opening doors to continuing education and leadership training, WISE has demonstrated impressive growth. Read on for milestones in our history, none of which would be possible without the strong commitment of our board, committee members, volunteers and valued members and partners across the country.
