Rapinoe is an Olympic Gold Medalist, two-time FIFA Women's World Cup Champion and US Women's National Team captain. She uses her platform to advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, fight racial inequality, promote voter rights and close the gender pay gap. For such efforts, she has eraned the Presidential Medal of Freedom, our nation's highest civilian honor.

Bird is a WNBA All-Star, USA Women's Basketball Player of the Year, five-time Olympic Gold Medalist and four-time WNBA Champion. She is a star marketer and has shown other female athletes that they, too, can secure high-profile endorsements that reflect their personal values. 

White has not only dominated the competitive circuit, but transformed youth culture and brought slope style to the streets. Kids from the bus stop to the lift line express their love of sports Shaun has brought to the mainstream. The brand he's built shows the world what kind of impact an extreme sports athlete can have on consumer behavior.

Shiffrin is a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist, five-time overall Alpine World Cup champion and four-time world champ in slalom. She is breaking boundaries both on and off the slopes. Her courage and originality has not only shaped ski culture, but inspired a new generation of women to take a creative approach.
