Women in Sports and Events (WISE), the leading voice and resource for women in the business of sports, will welcome 34 participants to its fifth annual WISE Executive Leadership Institute (WELI) in partnership with Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth Nov. 4-9.

The five-day intensive study is considered the gold standard in leadership development programming. Designed to help women executives become more effective leaders as they navigate their respective business environments, WELI’s customized curriculum – developed with the faculty and resources of world-renowned business school Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth – addresses the business and personal skills required for success, as well as specific challenges faced by women in sports.

FOX Sports will be represented by Leanna Einbinder, SVP, FOX Sports Business and Legal Affairs, and Nancy McDonald, VP, FOX Sports Consumer Marketing.

“In our fifth year, WELI will host a record number of passionate female executives in our industry,” said Kathleen Francis, national chair of WISE. “This immersive study program gives attendees the leadership tools to help them continue to make positive contributions, and deep professional connections to support them on their journey.”
