leadher-series LeadHER Series – Tara Slone + Guests

March 9, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm MST


Each month we host the Virtual LeadHER Series in conversation with inspiring leaders from diverse industries. This is a golden opportunity to connect and learn from leaders driving change, participate in the discussion, and make valuable connections with women from across Canada.

We embrace inclusivity and value diverse perspectives.

Just because we cannot meet in person does not mean that we cannot forge solid relationships, share knowledge, and grow personally and professionally. Don’t miss this opportunity to build your circle of influence each month and hear from authentic leaders who share their career paths and inspiring story!

If you are someone who values building relationships, interested to grow your connections and learning from others, this is the virtual networking platform for you!

LeadHER Series – In Conversation with Tara Slone, Co-host, Rogers Hometown Hockey, Host- Top of [HER] Game- Sportsnet Singer, Loudmouth | Women of Inspiration™ – Women Driving Change Contributor | @sportsnet

Growing up a hockey fan, Tara first professionally pursued her passion for music, becoming the lead singer of the Juno-nominated rock group Joydrop, and as a finalist on the hit CBS series Rockstar: INXS. Tara also has a lengthy acting resume, having appeared in dozens of films and television shows.

When looking for the next step in her career, Tara jumped at the opportunity to work at a small TV station in Toronto, and it became clear that moving from interviewee to interviewer gave Slone a unique perspective with her interview subjects. Tara’s next stop was as the host of Breakfast Television Calgary, where she spent five years. It was there that was given the opportunity to work in the world of sports, acting as a regular contributor to Sportsnet, covering the WHL and CIS hockey, curling, soccer, and bobsleigh.

Tara currently co-hosts the ground-breaking NHL broadcast Rogers Hometown Hockey alongside Ron MacLean, and helms the weekly Sportsnet series Top of [HER] Game, focussing on stories of empowered women in the world of sports. Tara is also a 2020 Canadian Screen Award nominee for her work on the CityTV music program Budweiser Stage at Home, and was just listed as a Social Change Advocate of note in the Money & Power edition of The Hockey News.
