In celebration of WISE’s 25th anniversary, we take a trip down memory lane to how it all began. Women in Sports and Events was established in 1993 by five women looking to make an impact on the sports industry. Their plan was a success as women have gathered together at WISE meetings and special events ever since. In 1995, the first Woman of the Year Award Luncheon took place at Madison Square Garden. The annual event continues to grow and draws more than 600 attendees today.
A special thank you to our board and committee members and volunteers who have contributed countless hours of their time throughout our first 25 years, and to all of our valued members and partners across the country for their support.
