On March 24th 2021, OpenSponsorship held an amazing webinar in celebration of Women's History Month.

The panel of speakers was made up of powerful and inspiring women who are former professional athletes, company founders/CEOs, national sport league directors, and sponsorship specialists. 

This incredible group of women discussed how and why brands should use female athletes in influencer marketing campaigns. They reviewed their thoughts on the sponsorship business and why they think female athletes are the total package when it comes to influencer marketing. They preached how female athletes bring authenticity as influencers and have higher engagement rates from their loyal and large fan bases in a more effective way than other types of influencers. They also discussed the future and potential female athletes have in the influencer marketing business.
