Athletes as Activists FULL

Athlete activism is an ever-evolving phenomenon that today looks very different from when we started the conversation a year ago. We believe that activist efforts seek to change the social climate and structures that make volunteerism necessary, yet few people understand their service as an important contribution to larger structural social change.

We seek to help female athletes and laypersons understand the power and necessity of activism in achieving social change, and to reframe volunteerism and service as an effective act of dissent.

This panel discussion will share the stories of athletes, coaches and executives in the sports industry who have found their voice and used it to support causes they believe in while highlighting Play Like a Girl programs and sharing how athletes and those passionate about sport can propel our efforts to level the playing field for girls and women in sports.
