Women in Sports and Events
The leading voice and resource for professional women in the business of sports.

WISE/R Symposium


Navigating your career can be difficult and confusing at times. Where and how you start is not necessarily where you finish. You advance from contributor to manager, taking on more responsibility or a greater leadership role. Sometimes you transition because of personal interest and sometimes to meet changing organizational needs.

The most successful leaders recognize that change is constant, so they pay close attention to the evolving needs of the organization and industry. In the process, they are mindful of the skills needed to make meaningful contributions. They know the value of growing their networks, identifying resources and determining where the opportunities lie.

360-degree View

TheĀ WISE/R Symposium, the first of its kind to focus solely on the personal and professional development of women in the business of sports, was launched in 2014. Taking a 360-degree view of working in sports, our sessions feature leaders across the industry who share their stories, discuss trends, provide actionable strategies to making an impact and dispel myths about the best jobs for women.

Each year, we look for new ways to connect and support WISE members. Come learn, be inspired and make valuable connections for your professional journey. Let's get WISE/R together!
