SVG’s Women’s Sports Media Initiative (WSMI) will host its annual meeting, in conjunction with the SVG Summit.  WSMI is a networking group that aims to enhance the role of women in the creation, production, and distribution of sports content.

This year’s meeting will include plenty of networking opportunities, light refreshments, and a panel discussion:

Expect the Unexpected: Spotlight on Sports Production Management
Life happens and, as anyone involved in planning a major sports production knows, it often happens during a live sports production. How do sports production managers keep their shows running smoothly and keep their teams focused in the midst of an emergency or massive change in plans? Leaders in sports production management discuss their current challenges, preparations for the future, and more.
Moderator: Karen Hogan, WSMI, Director
Panelists:
Brooke Berger, MLB Network, Senior Production Manager
Mary Ellen Carlyle, Dome Productions, SVP and GM
Lisa Jo Harrington, Freelancer and ESPN Recurring Operations Producer
