Today: Tune in for the Women in Sports virtual panel

The Canton Charge, powered by the Cleveland Cavaliers, are excited to announce a virtual panel discussing the careers of women in sports on Thursday, December 10th at 6:30 pm. The panelists will answer questions and provide insight on how they broke into the sports industry and rose through the ranks into the leadership roles they carry today. They’ll highlight the benefits and value of strong mentorship from women and we’ll discuss how the attendees can empower themselves to break into the sports industry (or any career!)
