Dan Devone, professional global speaker and media consultant, will speak to our Club about the intersections between sports and politics. He'll address how topical issues such as sexism, racism, and nationalism often divide our country with polarizing perspectives. He'll look at how sports often serve as a platform for these "hot button" issues.

Dan will explore perspectives on whether an athlete should enlighten others about matters not related to sports, including a trip down memory lane to historical moments at the 1936 Olympics in Germany and the 1968 Olympics in Mexico. 

Dan is a five-time Emmy award-winning television sports broadcaster and host in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle. For 25 years, he hosted NFL and Major League Baseball shows. Dan currently teaches media skills in Fortune 500 companies.
