Atlanta, GA – The Winning Edge Leadership Academy announced today that the Atlanta Braves will join the 2019 Game Changing Retreat as a corporate site visit partner providing an opportunity for interested cohort members to gain insight while spending time with professionals in the organization. The site visit will take place on Friday, June 21, 2019 at the Braves’ offices in SunTrust Park providing cohort members a first-hand look at careers in baseball.
“When we started planning for our second retreat, I wanted to incorporate another way for cohort members to build their network and gain a better understanding of the various career fields in sports business. The city of Atlanta, home to first-class events and teams, provided the perfect setting to engage with local organizations, like the Atlanta Braves, who are committed to diversity and inclusion,” said Executive Director and retreat host, Corinne Milien.
In addition to their participation as a corporate site visit partner, Adrian Williams, Senior Director of Diversity and Community Marketing for the Braves, will join NASCAR’s Erica Wilkerson and Tiffany Kelly, sports entrepreneur and analytics professional, on an emerging career panel hosted by co-founder Maria Taylor that will stream live on Twitter Friday, June 21.
“We are excited to host the 2019Game Changing Retreat at SunTrust Park. We look forward to meeting emerging leaders in the sports business world and we hope to show them different career areas within baseball,” said Atlanta Braves Senior Director of Diversity and Community Marketing, Adrian Williams.
We are still seeking organizations/individuals in the Atlanta who want to get involved as a 2019 Retreat Corporate Site Visit Parter. If you are or know anyone that may be interested, please contact Corinne at Corinne@winningedgeleadership.org.
