Tom Cosentino, iMedia President, Joins WISE Mentor Program

As one who has always  valued the mentoring he received from some great public relations professionals early in my career and enjoyed teaching young professionals, it is with great pride to know that I have been selected by the Women in Sports and Events (WISE), to be a mentor in their signature program WISE Within.

WISE is the leading voice and resource for professional women in the business of sports and events. Its unique vision empowers WISE to celebrate and connect emerging and established women leaders, to promote one another in career growth and continue to change the face of the sports industry.

On October 13 at an event in New York City, I will find out the women sports executive that I will have the opportunity to work with over the next year as a mentor.  I’m looking forward to seeing who that individual will be and hoping that in some small way, I will be able to instill some of the knowledge I’ve learned over the years from my own experiences and that of others.

The sports industry has certainly changed over the years and there are a myriad of female executives now excelling and playing major roles in shaping the future of companies in all facets of sports. 

WISE Within gives dedicated mid-level professional women valuable access to senior-level executives who can share knowledge and experience, and provides mentors the opportunity to give back to women in the industry by guiding and nurturing the next generation of leaders.

My hope is not only to provide advice and counsel, but by listening to my mentee and learning of the challenges they face, actually learn and grow from the experience as well.
