GITG 2023 Conference

Testimonials - What Attendees Are Saying

The goal was to educate students about career opportunities in the sports business and connect them with companies that can offer them internships and jobs.

Here’s what our attendees and sponsors had to say.

"I am so grateful that I was able to go and have an amazing time networking with HBCU students and professionals within the industry. I was able to make several connections throughout the conference and look forward to collaborating with some of the companies in attendance on panels and professional workshops with the Minorities in Sports: Howard Chapter."

"This past weekend I was given the opportunity to attend the inaugural Get in the Game Conference in Baltimore, Maryland. Attending this conference allowed me to network and learn more from professionals in the sports industry. While attending, it was nice to network with other students of color especially from HBCU's who are aspiring to work in this industry."
