Join WISE Boston for our first annual "Women of Inspiration" event on December 17th at Harvard University, where we'll unite to celebrate the values of leadership and mentorship by honoring the achievements of a woman who continues to pave the way in the sports industry, Jackie MacMullan!
As a freelance sportswriter and NBA columnist for ESPN, as well as a regular panelist on ESPN's popular show, "Around the Horn," Jackie is a renowned industry analyst who got her start in Boston as a former Boston Globe sportswriter. She authored "When the Game was Ours" with NBA legends, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson. Among her many accolades, Jackie was the first woman to receive the Curt Gowdy Media Award from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
We're also very excited to have Jackie's former Westwood High School basketball coach, and extremely accomplished current Harvard women's basketball coach, Kathy Delaney-Smith, lead a candid and inspiring discussion with Jackie revealing how she got to where she is today.
In addition to food provided by sponsor Del Frisco's, drinks, networking time, and invaluable insight, we invite you to encourage your mentor or mentee to attend as well to celebrate those that helped us along our own career paths and continue to provide guidance and support.
