What is WISE?

Women in Sports and Events (WISE) assists students in gaining valuable skills and developing professional contacts to ease the transition between college life and professional life. WISE is the foundation upon which you can build professional success.


Why Become a Collegiate Member of WISE?

Becoming a collegiate member offers students a variety of educational and networking opportunities that can help support you as you complete your education and move toward a professional career. Collegiate members are offered the following opportunities:

 

  • Networking opportunities with accomplished WISE women in the industry
  • Access to exclusive events discussing industry and career-related topics
  • Discounted or free admission to WISE chapter events, such as our annual Speed Mentoring Roundtables
  • Discounted rate to WISE national events, such as the annual WISE/R Symposium and WISE Awards Luncheon in NYC
  • Members-only access to our online Membership Directory
  • Members-only access to exclusive WISE content
  • Volunteer and WISE committee service opportunities at both the national and chapter levels

 

Support

The true strength of WISE lies in the relationships that form between our members. Your college’s WISE chapter is a community that provides programming, access to help and advice on nearly any topic, and networking opportunities in nearly any aspect of the industry

The professional mentors are adult friends and role models to a college junior or senior (mentee). Mentors invest their time listening, building trust, and establishing a relationship that encourages the mentee to make the most of their college experience prior to moving into a career.

 

Mentoring

WISE helps you establish professional relationships that can accelerate you careers. WISE Within — the national signature program of WISE — is an integrated, guided mentoring program that connects mid-level professionals to senior executives through facilitated group sessions, personal one-to-one mentoring, and a national online network. Founded in 2007, WISE Within boasts more than 400 alumni around the country.

 

Networking

WISE offers countless opportunities for you to grow the professional network you need to reach the highest levels of our industry. Local and national events and our online network provide you with the platform to build and maintain relationships that matter.

 

Education

WISE provides you with access to the thought leadership you need to develop your career. Our exclusive members-only CareerWISE content gives you the tools to stay a step ahead throughout your career, including:
