The Los Angeles Sparks are empowering local High School girls as part of our #WeAreGirls campaign, through COO For The Day. At each home game, a student job shadows as the honorary COO, tours the ins and outs of STAPLES Center, sits courtside, and learns valuable networking and industry skills from the franchise’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Christine Simmons; this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for young students who are considering their future career path and aspirations.
Christine is a proud UCLA alum and is the former President of the UCLA Alumni Association. Prior to joining the Sparks in October 2014, she was an Executive VP at Magic Johnson Enterprises.
