Meet the Speakers: Women Leaders in Professional Sports

Cynt Marshall and Jeanny Boucek with the Dallas Mavericks, and Dana Larson with FOX Sports Southwest, are on the lineup at D CEO’s June 23 Women’s Leadership Symposium.

As the first Black female CEO of an NBA franchise, the first female coach in Dallas Mavericks history (and one of only four in the NBA), and one of the region’s top sportscasters with an Emmy to her name, Cynt Marshall, Jenny Boucek, and Dana Larson have changed the face of professional sports in Dallas.

Join D CEO editor Christine Perez for, “A Conversation on Women’s Value in a Male-Dominated Arena with the Women of the Mavs.” Enjoy a courtside seat as the sports standouts share what they’ve learned about juggling careers and motherhood, how they stepped out of their comfort zone to advocate for their own value, and the lessons learned on their journey to the top of their profession.

D CEO’s 2021 Women’s Leadership Symposium, held virtually on June 23, will feature 19 leaders in 11 keynotes and panel discussions, Q&A sessions with speakers, three networking opportunities, a lunch-time breakout, and more.
