What is Parity?
Parity exists to unapologetically work toward closing the gender pay gap in sports, benefitting both elite women athletes and their fans. Minority-founded in 2020, we drive revenue to athletes by using proprietary data analytics to create powerfully inclusive and profitable sponsorship opportunities, NFT sales, and more.
We don’t wait for leagues, national governing bodies, or agents to dictate where dollars are spent. With a growing roster of more than 759 athletes from 70+ sports and 20+ corporate partners including Microsoft, Strava, and Morgan Stanley, Parity is revolutionizing the financial model for women athletes.
Our latest venture, the Parity NFT Marketplace powered by VereNFT on the Aventus Network layer-2 blockchain, features compelling digital collectible items and exclusive unlockable content from our roster of elite athletes. Sports icons including Jackie Joyner-Kersee and Jayna Hefford headline our illustrious Legends Collection.

Professional athletes overcome incredible odds to do what they do.
During the last Olympic games, a whopping 150 athletes used GoFundMe or other crowdfunding platforms to fund their expenses associated with the games. There is tremendous disparity when it comes to athletes’ incomes across gender and type of sport.
In 2018, the top 100 highest-paid athletes earned $3.8 billion, a 23% jump over the previous year. However, there were zero women athletes on this list. In previous years, there has been at least one, and as many as three.
One of the drivers of the current gender pay gap in sports is the disparity in sports sponsorship, and we think this is a huge opportunity.
Commercial investment and media coverage of women’s sport remains shockingly low, particularly in comparison to the deals done in men’s sport. Women’s sports sponsorships accounted for only 0.4% of total sports sponsorships between 2011 and 2013. Media coverage of women’s sports shows a similar level of disparity – women’s sports accounts for only 7% of total sports coverage.
Men’s sports make up 93% of all sports media coverage
...women’s sports make up only 7%
