As industries begin to reveal the true scope and scale of the gender pay gap, the male-dominated sports industry has not escaped criticism for its unequal pay practices: Men and women are compensated at vastly different levels for doing the exact same work, be it scoring goals, shooting hoops, or hitting home runs. This off-field battle for pay equity and greater representation of women as professional coaches and commentators continues to pick up momentum, with All-Star players speaking up on behalf of their sports and teammates, and sporting companies putting more women in the broadcaster’s box and on billboards. This panel of accomplished female athletes will discuss how to keep pushing for progress and work with industry leaders to achieve gender equity.
