WNBA Sparks Celebrate Diversity In #We AreWomen Panel
The WNBA L.A. Sparks extended their #WeAreWomen campaign for a fifth year with yesterday's pregame panel featuring "accomplished women from the world of sports and entertainment who shared their thoughts on the importance of diversity and inclusion, equality and equity." Sparks President & COO Danita Johnson said prior to the home game against the Connecticut Sun, "Our league is a representation of diversity and inclusion." Sparks coach Derek Fisher: "There are some elements to coaching and working in the W that you don't have elsewhere. You have an opportunity I think to play a bigger role in the community" (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 8/26).
