Women of Inspiration

On Tuesday December 15, 2020, the WISE NYC Metro Chapter hosted its annual Women of Inspiration event virtually – for the first time ever! Three talented female sports business professionals who are making a positive impact on the business of sports and events while going above and beyond their day-to-day job duties to serve as positive role models and mentors for other women were recognized.
