Gain new leadership insights from Donna Orender, who is recognized as one of the Top 10 Most Powerful Women in Sports and one of Newsweek’s 100 Most Influential People in Sports.
She has that special ability to bring a fresh eye, a keen analysis and a unique ability to lead people in new directions, build bottoms lines and deliver targeted results. Donna will share insights from being one of the first women pro basketball players to her C-suite roles with the WNBA and the PGA TOUR.
In her 2016 TEDx Talk Jacksonville, Donna discussed how she discovered that the path to enlightenment, to a passion focused on girls excelling and women rising, began with not being afraid to ask a simple question: “Why not?” It’s a question Donna believes we must embrace in the interest of personal growth, transformation and broader social opportunities. Watch it here.
Leader, Business Executive and Game Changer
Donna has dedicated her career to assisting companies and people in navigating unchartered waters. She guides companies in creating positive and inclusive cultures and leveraging successful growth and brand strategies. She works with the equity community in identifying new opportunities and serves on several boards.
Founder, Generation W®
Generation W was inspired by the belief that when people – especially women – come together, magic happens. Generation W brings women together and builds thought leadership, confidence and engagement around the currency of great ideas. It is a dynamic and action-oriented community that embraces the guiding tenets of education, inspiration and connection – and the power of women’s leadership.
Donna served as President of the Women’s National Basketball Association for six years. Overseeing operations, she increased TV ratings, digital growth and merchandise sales. She revitalized the brand’s value and relevance, resulting in the league experiencing four years of consecutive attendance growth, after many years of decline.
During her 17 years at the PGA TOUR, she led the negotiating team that changed the paradigm for how PGA TOUR golf was packaged and sold for TV, resulting in significant growth. She also developed strategic direction across all business lines. Donna’s business career began after playing three years in the Women’s Professional Basketball League, the WBL, where she earned All-Star status. She worked in network TV sports at ABC and later at SportsChannel before forming her own production company.
