How to Crack Into Sports Management, Marketing, & Entertainment

How to Crack Into Sports Management, Marketing, & Entertainment

Did you know California currently has 18 major professional sports franchises? Far more than any other US state. The sports industry is a large component of entertainment in Southern California. When you think about working in the sports industry, do you assume job positions are only available for a special privileged group or star athletes? Administrative roles in the sports industry are tough to land. Breaking through the glass ceiling can be even more difficult for professionals of color, women, and the LGBT community. In an effort to bridge the gap, Los Angeles Urban League Young Professionals and the Los Angeles Black Investors Club have once again collaborated to curate an amazing professional development and networking event.

On March 15th, we will host “How to Crack into Sports Management, Marketing & Entertainment”. Panelists from multiple industries within sports will share their journey and provide insight on how to navigate the sports world.

Panelist include:

Kristen Ingram – Head of Affiliate Marketing, NFL Network

Johnathan Franklin – Community & External Relations, LA Rams (Dorsey Don)

Jon-Devin Carrere – Managing Producer, Spectrum SportsNet Lakers & Dodgers

Jennifer Keurulainen – Director of Competition, Special Olympics So Cal
