Women in Sports Industry Symposium coming to CSU

The common perception of American professional sports is that it is an industry reserved for men.

CSU and the Denver Broncos Sports Management Institute will put an end to that myth at the first Women in Sports Industry Symposium, set for 7 p.m. March 27 in the Lory Student Center’s North Ballroom.

Distinguished panel

The symposium includes a panel discussion featuring several female executives from the Denver Broncos, and also Christine Susemihl, senior associate director of athletics at CSU.

Kim Mbadinga-Nzamba, a former Rams basketball player working in the CSU athletics department, will serve as moderator.

The Women in Sports Industry Symposium will provide first-hand knowledge and testimony to the opportunities that exist in professional and athletic sport organizations for women in today’s society, with advice and information on how to enter and advance in the industry. The symposium advances the mission of the Denver Broncos Institute of Sport Management at CSU by continuing to provide students in the institute and the University community at-large real world experiences available through the program.

The event is free and open to the public. For information contact Gary Ozzello at 970-222-3361.
