Closing the Women’s Sports Pay Gap

Access and Opportunity

Nov 12 2022 • 26 mins

In May of 2022, the U.S. Soccer Federation agreed to a landmark deal awarding equal pay for the women and men of the US National Soccer teams. On this episode, we look at what this move means for other women’s leagues charting the same course towards equity in pay and beyond.

First, we hear from Los Angeles Sparks player Nneka Ogwumike about her path to becoming a decorated player in the WNBA and how she’s using her platform to engage the league in conversations about equity. Nneka also talks about the importance of unifying all women’s sports leagues to collectively push forward progress for all.

Then, host Carla Harris sits down with venture capitalist Kara Nortman, owner of Angel City FC, a women-owned soccer team that is raising the bar for investment across the league. Kara gives insight into the power and potential that she sees in women’s sports through fostering fan loyalty and engaging with the community.
