ABOUT

WOMEN IN SPORTS.

WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP.

 

The second annual SPORTS FORWARD summit explored the future of women in sports.

 

On September 17, we heard from athletes, business leaders, and champions of equality who will discuss the value of sports in preparing women for leadership roles. 

 

Speakers will address societal attitudes about women in sports and ideas and solutions to boost participation, access, and fan engagement.
