WISE Seattle partners with Tagboard and the Seattle Sports Commission to honor the first Women of Inspiration Award Winner

Seattle, WA. - (October 10, 2022) - With the launch of their new award, the Seattle Women in Sports and Events (WISE) Chapter will recognize a woman in our community who shares in WISE Seattle’s desire to leave a lasting impact on future generations of women in the sports and events industries.

The Women of Inspiration (WOI) Winner will encourage an inclusive community that promotes diversity and equity, and empower personal and professional growth of those in the sports and events industry while evolving the industry so it continues to thrive in years to come.

Thirty-six nominations were submitted highlighting incredible women and their contributions to their local communities. After much review, our board selected four finalists who all exemplify the chapter's vision and core pillars. With the help of our technology sponsor Tagboard, we were able to highlight our four WOI finalists and ask our community to vote for who they think should be the winner.

“As a leader in the Sports and Entertainment Industries, Tagboard cares deeply about the communities we support and we strive to amplify the voices, opportunities, and initiatives that align with our values,” said Nathan Peterson, CEO of Tagboard. “Partnering with WISE Seattle on their Women of Inspiration Award checks all the boxes and we are delighted to be a small part of their larger work to support women in our industry for generations to come.”
The WOI Finalists will be honored and the Winner announced at the Seattle Sports Commission’s annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast on Friday, October 14th.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with WISE Seattle to honor the incredible accomplishments of the Women of Inspiration Award nominees at our 10th annual Women’s Leadership Breakfast,” said Seattle Sports Commission President & CEO Beth Knox. “Our event was established to share the indelible impact women leaders have on our community and this award is another shining example of that inspiring, transformational work.”
