Now, more than ever,
current and former athletes are standing up for causes they believe in.
And they are changing the world.
From raising public awareness or driving governmental policy changes to leading social movements, the impact of athletes’ activism goes far beyond the field of play.
However, how can the individual athlete play a larger role?
How can they better and more impactfully raise awareness, shape mentalities,
instigate cultural change and positively influence the sporting industry and global society?
How can they inspire, encourage, and help a world in crisis?
This SIGA Special Session will shine a light on the SIGA Champions,
those athletes that embody SIGA’s values of integrity, solidarity, and social responsibility.
Those athletes that lead by example and make the difference, on and off the field of play.
