Designed to equip women with the professional development tools to succeed in the business of sports, WISE/R provides you with the REAL knowledge that matters for advancing your career. Hear from experts and business leaders, including WISE Women of the Year honorees, and take away practical strategies that you can apply immediately.
Follow our weekly WISE/R Wednesday posts where we share lessons learned from our WISE/R Symposium and WISE/R events.
WISE/R Symposium | Overview
Navigating your career can be difficult and confusing at times. Where and how you start is not necessarily where you finish. You advance from being a contributor to a 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 continue to make meaningful contributions. They know the value of growing their networks, identifying resources and determining where the opportunities lie.
The WISE/R Symposium, a first of its kind to focus solely on the personal and professional development for 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 your own contribution, and dispel myths about the best jobs for women.
Each year, we look for new ways to facilitate relationship building and to support WISE members. In 2017, we are introducing Office Hours to provide you with an opportunity to connect with senior executives in a one-on-one or small group setting. Come learn, be inspired and make valuable connections for your professional journey. Let's get WISE/R together!
