In this session...

With female athletes leading Team USA in Rio this year in medal count, women on the sidelines of the NFL and NBA and holding leadership positions with the most powerful leagues in the world… why is there still so much gender disparity sport? What role do media, brands and athletes play in helping move this conversation forward so women are respected, treated and paid equally?
Join espnW, the WNBA and professional athletes to tackle the topics women still face in sports and discuss why the female sports fan cannot be ignored.
