Women in Sports and Events (WISE) is the voice and leading resource for women in the business of sports and events. Our mission is to connect professional women in the industry to develop and support each other. We are women-helping-women and we strive to empower you ― and every WISE member ― to succeed at the pinnacle of the professional ladder.


Originally founded in New York City in1993, WISE has since expanded to include chapters in 10 American cities. WISE Cleveland was started in 2002 by Paula Grooms, formerly of IMG, and a close group of professional colleagues in the sports and events industries in Cleveland. WISE Cleveland currently has a board of 10, and boasts over 100 local members.

The WISE Within mentoring program is a key benefit to WISE members. WISE Within is an integrated, guided mentoring program with a proven track record of providing valuable career resources to both mentors and mentees alike. The goals of WISE Within are to tap into the WISE National Knowledge Base, make connections, build relationships, and experience the power of mentorship. All active members are invited and encouraged to participate in the WISE Within program.


Membership in WISE Cleveland is cost-effective too. Professional members pay $100 per year, inclusive of regularly scheduled special events. Student members (with proper student identification) pay $40 per year. Participation in the WISE Cleveland Woman of the Year Luncheon and the Annual Golf Outing are extra.
