Photo of the Week: Female Career in Sports Panel

This week’s Photo of the Week comes from assistant photo editor Erum Kidwai from Monday night’s Female Career in Sports panel hosted by Hurricane Athletics. The panel was aimed at female students who hoped to pursue careers in athletics, media and administration.

A panel, composed of Shadé Olasimbo, Alicia Jessop, Karai Lockley, Kysha Harriell, Jennifer Strawley, Shirelle Jackson, and Christy Chirinos, features women with careers in sports Monday at the Fieldhouse of the BankUnited Center. Hosted by Hurricane Athletics, the women described their experiences in the industry, highlighting their achievements and struggles with issues such as wage discrimination in a male-dominated profession. The speakers, collectively, had experience in the fields of journalism, management, academics and more. They stressed the topic of networking and social media being both harmful and helpful when looking for a career in athletics. Erum Kidwai // Assistant Photo Editor
