Recording: The Expanding Opportunities around Equitable Investment in Women, Mar 11, 2023

Growth happens when shared experience and excitement is fueled by investment and focus. The sports industry is the most powerful proof, and yet women's sports still experience setbacks to growth – mostly impeded by long-standing myths. Fact: women's sports have powerful ROI for those who invest. But also, investing in women is about more than money. Progress for voices, platforms, reach, and selflessness drive change for shared reward. So, let's talk about expanding opportunities around how you can engage, then see the rewards for your innovation. A conversation with Nkeka Ogwumike, WNBPA President, and Amanda Balionis Renner, Sports Broadcaster – moderated by Thayer Lavielle of Wasserman’s The Collective – dives into the current state of women in sport and culture, and the expanding doors where you can step in to keep progress in motion.
