One Hour Elimination of Bias MCLE Credit

It’s been one year since the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team union negotiated a historic compensation change for its players, following the filing of an equal pay complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the team’s refusal to play on an uneven field, and a social media campaign waged to raise attention to the issue of fair pay in  sports. We will take a look back at the deal, the legal issues, the use of social media, and the current equal pay landscape in sports with Whitney Unruh, Senior Director of Global Soccer at Wasserman Media Group, who has represented several of the team’s players. The presentation includes a catered lunch.
