Women’s Leadership Roundtable: Chicago
After a successful debut at the SVGW Annual Meeting in New York City, the Women’s Leadership Roundtable travels to Chicago! During the panel, we’ll discuss what makes for a good leader. Although there is no one-size-fits-all explanation, executives in the sports-broadcasting industry share many traits that make them effective, efficient, and successful leaders. Learn from industry leaders as they discuss their career trajectories, current challenges, shared characteristics, and future goals in the industry.

Confirmed Panelists:
Kim Beauvais, Big Ten Network, SVP, Human Resources and Business Operations
Sarah Lauch, NBC Sports Chicago, Executive Producer, Original Content
