[August 26, 2020 Minneapolis, MN] – Sportsdigita’s CEO & Founder Angelina Lawton has been selected for the Sports Business Journal’s 2020 Class of Game Changers. This year’s class includes 50 women from “every sector across sports business from teams and leagues, to agencies and sponsors, to technology companies and media outlets.”
In 2011, SBJ created Game Changers to “tell the stories of women in the sports business — women with broad, deep, and varied responsibilities and oversight who contribute to the success of the industry in multiple ways.” The 392 women honored in all 10 classes of Game Changers follow in the progressive heritage of their colleagues who have been part of SBJ’s Lifetime Achievement, Champions and Forty Under 40 programs — women such as Billie Jean King, Val Ackerman and Bea Perez.
On Oct. 27, the 2020 class of Game Changers will be honored in a virtual conference and award ceremony hosted by the Sports Business Journal.
“I have always held the Sports Business Journal in high regard, especially their Game Changers awards as I have watched them announced over the years. I am incredibly proud and humbled to have made this year’s class among the likes of so many other powerful and inspiring women! There truly is no limit to what we as women can do.” says Lawton.
This year’s class will also be covered in a Special Edition of the Sports Business Journal, Oct 19 where a short profile and cover story of each honoree will be published.
