On Tuesday, December 6, 2016, WISE NYC Metro Chapter presented its 2nd annual Women of Inspiration event at Liberty Hall in NYC. The evening paid tribute to three extraordinary women leaders: Wendy Hilliard, Hall of Fame rhythmic gymnast and the first African American to represent the United States and remained on the Rhythmic Gymnastics National Team a record nine times; Adweek’s Most Powerful Women in Sports and Sports Business Journal Game-Changer, Lisa Murray; and Alison Overholt, the first female editor of a major US sports magazine.

The year-end holiday celebration featured a roaring 20’s speakeasy theme with a live band, Prohibition Era themed gaming and beverage stations, and plenty of holiday cheer.
