About Power Play:
Power Play is a WISE signature event held annually by each chapter. The program panel will feature senior to executive level women from the same organization, or section of sports business, who represent different areas of discipline within the organization. This is the one time of the year where it is mandatory that all the panelists and moderator are women.
The WISE NYC Metro chapter debuted “Power Play: Up Close With…” in 2010. The success of the event led to the rollout of the program across all WISE professional chapters and its designation as a signature program event held annually in March in celebration of Women’s History Month.
