Celebrating our Mentors and Mentees

For the sixth year in a row, we proudly present the CSM Mentoring Challenge in partnership with Sports Business Journal. As the landscape of sport is changing with the rise of women in executive leadership positions and athletes who have ruptured stereotypes through their advocacy and impact driven work.  

Part of equalizing the playing field is making sure that young women build a strong network, have a foundation to grow, and are equipped with the skills to be the next Game Changer. The CSM Mentoring Challenge brings together ambitious women early in the careers in the sporting industry and top-level female executives who have been recognized as a Game Changer by Sports Business Journal. 

As part of the greater programming of the 2021 SBJ Game Changers Conference, we kicked-off the CSM Mentoring Challenge festivities. We invited all our mentors and mentees to an exclusive drinks reception in New York City to formerly introduce each pairing- as we transition back to live events.  

The next day, all were invited to the conference- virtually and in real life. Vanessa Taveras, SVP of Properties, 2020 Game Changer and long-time mentor, joined SBJ’s panel on mentorship. The women in our program were able to learn and network with the incredible industry leaders.  

Thank you all for your endless support and we look forward to sharing their stories!
