Register Now: ​​Behind The Scenes with The NHL’s First Black Female Photographer

If you had to invite one living legend to dinner, who would it be?

Since it’s Black History Month (or Black Futures Month to those following Kanye West’s recent attempt to re-brand the historic cultural celebration,) folks like Angela Davis, Ruby Bridges, The Obamas, Janet Mock, Kehinde Wiley, and Colin Kaepernick come to mind, but being exemplary isn’t the only way to make history.

Every single day Black folks across the diaspora make history by entering spaces that lack representation and becoming the first.

On February 23, 2022, at 2 pm ET, we’re honored to host Amanda J. Cain, the National Hockey League‘s first Black female photographer for a live, virtual discussion about her unique experience.

Join us to learn:

  • How Amanda’s non-traditional career journey led her to professional photography. Prepare to take notes on how you too can pivot and grow!
  • How Amanda’s unique and diverse life experiences influence the San Jose Sharks and SAP Center‘s content marketing and visual storytelling strategies.
  • What challenges and opportunities come with being the first Black woman in three positions throughout her career.
