Title IX: The Next 50 Years

When Title IX was passed in 1972, it had an immediate impact on the sports world — the lasting impact however, has proved to be far greater. Women’s sports have not only grown at the college level — but at the professional level as well.

Front Office Sports celebrated this historic milestone on the 50th anniversary with a virtual summit, featuring intimate conversations with some of the most influential female athletes and business leaders. 


1:00 – 1:05 PM
Opening Remarks

1:05 – 1:25 PM
What It Means to Be Bold and Brave: A Candid Conversation with Allyson Felix – Olympian, Activist and Entrepreneur
Allyson Felix will not only go down in history as the most decorated female track and field Olympic athlete – ever – but also as a catalyst for changing how brands like Nike address maternal protections for sponsored athletes as well as boldly moving forward with her own women’s lifestyle brand Saysh. Hear from Felix on her journey to breaking down barriers as an Olympian, activist and entrepreneur.
Moderated by Lisa Granatstein, Chief Content Officer, Front Office Sports

1:30 – 1:50 PM
NIL and the Road to Equity for Women in College Sports

The future is bright for college athletes, who, thanks to name, image, likeness reform, can now profit from endorsement opportunities. That holds especially true for women who have experienced gender inequity in the NCAA basketball tournaments. Hear from Klutch Sports’ Jade-Li English on the impact of NIL and what it means for women in college sports.
Moderated by Ernest Baker, Editor in Chief, Front Office Sports

1:55 PM – 2:15 PM
Trailblazing Pros on Breaking Barriers

The journey from amateur to elite professional competitors in male-dominated sports comes with its fair share of hard knocks and big wins. Hear from three remarkable pros — WWE Champion Bianca Belair and four-time Olympian Angela Ruggiero — on blazing a trail for the next generation of superstars.
Moderated by Haley Kopmeyer, Content Strategist, Just Women’s Sports 

2:20 – 2:40 PM
UCLA’s Reilyn Turner on the Collegiate Athlete Experience

Soccer star Reilyn Turner quickly dazzled fans in her freshman year and then turned the heat up, late last year making history by becoming the first-ever college athlete Nike signed to an NIL deal. Hear from the Bruins forward on balancing school, sports and her brand. Equally important, the Los Angeles native will work directly with LA–based community groups to inspire and empower young athletes.
Moderated by Amanda Christovich, Writer, Front Office Sports 

2:45 – 3:05 PM
In the Huddle with Bucs’ Coach Lo

There are very few female coaches in the NFL, and just one on-field coach who has a Super Bowl ring. Hear from Coach Lori Locust, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Assistant Defensive Line coach, on her extraordinary career, from playing semi-pro football to helping win Super Bowl LV.
Moderated by Lisa Granatstein, Chief Content Officer, Front Office Sports
