Thunder Hosts Caylee Dodson, A USA Today Woman of the Year

Celebrates Women’s History Month with mentor event for women business owners and tribute to Women of Thunder

Oklahoma City, Monday, March 21, 2022 – In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Oklahoma City Thunder will host Caylee Dodson, executive director of RestoreOKC, along with RestoreOKC staff members at its Wednesday, March 23 game at Paycom Center. Dodson was recently named as one of USA Today’s Women of the Year for her work in establishing The Market at EastPoint in Northeast Oklahoma City.

“We are honored to host Caylee and the RestoreOKC family,” said Christine Berney, vice president of Community Engagement for the Thunder. “We have worked with RestoreOKC for many years and just this past November hosted our turkey giveaway at The Market at EastPoint for their clients. We know the huge impact they have in our community. We congratulate Caylee on her designation and are so grateful for her leadHERship and commitment to Oklahoma City.”

In addition to Wednesday night’s in-game recognition, the Thunder, and its partner StitchCrew, are for the first time ever, working with an all women-owned business cohort within its Thunder LaunchPad business accelerator program. Thursday, March 24, Thunder leadership – including several women in leadership – will serve as mentors in a speed dating style event where business owners will receive expertise in areas such as the Thunder’s signature customer experience product CLICK!, human resources, marketing, and sales.  

During the month, the Thunder is also featuring content on its channels that recognize the contributions of its 83 full-time female staff members.
