Sports are excellent training grounds to develop the next generation of young women leaders. I feel blessed to own a WNBA team like the Mystics, which has an incredible drive for competition, unmatched focus, and an appreciation of their fans. I have made it my priority to promote young women, both on and off the court. If we can inspire just one woman or one young girl to get involved in either the sport or the game day experience, it has made it all worth it.From Sheila C. Johnson: Why Sports Teams Need Women Owners. One of the things I most admire about Sheila Johnson is the way she actively embraces and publicly promotes the cultural significance of the WNBA.
