SVGW (formerly Women’s Sports Media Initiative) is a networking group that aims to enhance the role of women in the creation, production, and distribution of sports content. SVGW members work for sports leagues, teams, television networks, technology companies, and start-ups where their focus is the business and technology behind sports production. SVG sponsors SVGW meetings, lunch-and-learns, and speaker events on a quarterly basis nationwide, where members are invited to listen, learn, exchange ideas and best practices, and meet other women in the industry.
