Pivot and Adapt:
Sports & Recreation Careers during COVID-19

Date: February 17, 2021 | Time: 12pm ET - 1:30pm ET

Online - Zoom

The sports and recreation world has had to pivot and adapt in ways originally unthinkable by those who help to build and lead it. 2020 changed the landscape in an industry that has become an interwoven part of our lives.  Cancelling the NCAA tournament, postponing the Masters,  creating a bubble for the playoffs,  have been shifts that nobody would have ever anticipated. The countless decisions, the flexible scheduling on the fly were required of so many just to continue the sports industry survival.
Join our panel of sports and recreation experts as they talk about the various roles they play within their specific companies, the impact of COVID-19 on their areas, how they landed in their roles, and where UConn helped them along their way. Last, hear what they recommend to those wishing to find their way into the world of sports and recreation.
