True North, the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose are proud to be part of important conversations that celebrate and encourage women's success. As part of the NHL's Gender Equality Month, the Jets and Moose will each host a virtual event in March, recognizing the important roles and contributions women are making in hockey every day in our community.
On March 25th, 2021 we aired the Winnipeg Jets Women in Hockey Panel "Changing the Game", which showcased a diverse array of women speaking about how they have created a career in sports and how they are now playing key roles in shaping the current and future of hockey. This panel was geared to women, not just in sports, but from all sectors and at any stage of education or career with insights meant to inform, inspire and encourage future female success. Please re-watch the full panel below.
In recognition of Gender Equality Month, the women behind the Manitoba Moose discussed their roles with the club and personal experience working in the sports industry with Global News Winnipeg Reporter Kahla Evans.
The panel included Annie Chipman, Marketing Manager for the Manitoba Moose, Raquel Payne, Community Relations Coordinator for True North Sports + Entertainment, Talia Gallant, Ticket Sales Representative for the Manitoba Moose as well as myself, Jennifer Redenbach, Hockey Communications Coordinator for the Manitoba Moose.
The NHL's Gender Equality Month celebrates women who make hockey happen every day, and as part of the larger Hockey is for Everyone initiative, works to drive positive social change and foster more inclusive communities. Learn more at NHL.com/genderequality.
