Did you know that the Women’s Advisory Forum (WAF) offers a mentoring program for SP+ employees? In fact, Senior Vice President Steven Aiello and Senior Manager Dialyn Dopp recently attended the 2016 Game Changer Conference together in New York as mentor and mentee.

“It was great to meet Steve in person. His enthusiasm for clients, deals and service standards is persuasive by phone—and even more compelling in person,” Dialyn stated after meeting her mentor in person for the first time.

Both Steven and Dialyn found value in attending the Game Changer Conference, which is an annual one-day event focusing on the impact that women have on the business of sports. The duo had the opportunity to network with successful men and women from a variety of industries.

“A big focus of the conference and discussion panels was the importance of mentorship and some solid examples of how that relationship was a “game changer” for many women who are now successful executives in their areas,” Steven mentioned after attending the conference.

Dialyn really enjoyed the speakers, which included successful women in sports-related industries such as Adrienne Loft, SVP of Global Brand Marketing with Under Armor who shared her strong message of encouraging others to think bigger.

“The one-on-one time made this whole mentoring program more personal now,” concluded Steven.
