The leading voice and resource for professional women in the business of sports. Through ongoing meetings, special events and mentoring programs, WISE offers its members the opportunity to gain valuable insights and connections that can provide them a competitive advantage in their current position and as they advance in their careers.
The WISE (Women in Sports and Events) mission is to create and support programs that enhance the success and growth of women in the business of sports. The organization strives to be the definitive source for businesswomen seeking information about issues, challenges and opportunities impacting all stages of their career – from entry level to senior management and those in transition.
Founded in 1993, WISE is a national membership organization headquartered in New York City with chapters in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, NYC Metro, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco/Bay Area and Washington, D.C.
WISE National, governed by the National Board of Directors, leads the overarching strategy and provides resources accessible to all members, while each WISE chapter elects its own board to carry out WISE’s mission at the local level. Chapters provide programming and valuable networking opportunities in their region and work with the National Board to deliver WISE initiatives such as the WISE Within Mentor Program and Speed Mentoring Roundtables.
