The National Hispanic Media Coalition Presents 

Building Community: Elevating Women In Sports

Emmy Award-winning Journalist MJ Acosta-Ruiz Hosts Our Latest Episode Celebrating Women’s History Month with Women Athletes Changing The Game

The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) hosted a panel featuring athletes diving into culture, gender, and representation which is live now on NHMC’s YouTube Channel.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, NHMC reaffirms its commitment to elevating Latina representation in Hollywood, D.C., and beyond. Only 38.4% of athletes currently employed in the United States are women and the most common ethnicity of overall athletes is White at 72.8%, and with a gender-wage gap more present than ever, it is time we invest in and elevate our talented Latina athletes. Hosted by Emmy Award-winning journalist MJ Acosta-Ruiz, the first woman of color to host a show at the NFL Network and last year’s NHMC Impact Awards Gala co-host, the panel explores the interdimensional identities Latina athletes carry in the industry, shining a light on representation and finding a support system of powerful women.

Featured panelists include:

  • Diana Flores, Captain and Quarterback of Mexico’s World Champion National Flag Football team
  • Nicco Montaño, Professional mixed martial artist 
National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is a woman-led 501(c)(3) non-profit civil and human rights organization that was founded to eliminate hate, discrimination, and racism toward the Latino communities.
