The Equity Project, powered by WSF, is a movement of individuals and organizations that aims to impact participation, policy, representation and leadership in sports in sustainable and measurable ways. The vision is clear: inspire the nation and create meaningful change so that all girls and women have equitable access to physical activity and sport, to help unlock limitless possibilities in their lives.
Nearly 50 years ago, Title IX opened the doors for sports participation. Today, women and girls still lag behind in access, leadership and coaching opportunities, pay and media coverage. As we enter a new decade, there is a groundswell of support for gender equity. With collective action, we can harness this momentum into lasting impact.
I believe in the promise of sports for girls and women; I’m joining The Equity Project to ensure a future where we are no longer chasing equity, but living it fully.
