The Dallas Cowboys recently conducted an all-day event titled the Minority Creative Workshop at the team's world headquarters, The Star in Frisco, in Frisco, Texas. At the event, Zenobia Winbush, the Dallas Cowboys social media graphic designer, provided students from area universities an opportunity to experience what it's like to design for America’s Team! The workshop featured day-to-day job responsibilities in sports media, plus provided tips and resources to help students excel along their career path. There was also a round table discussion featuring multiple Dallas Cowboys creative teammates.
