About Women's Sports Foundation

Billie Jean King founded the Women's Sports Foundation in 1974, building on her legacy as a champion athlete, advocate of social justice and agent of change. The foundation strives for gender equity and fights discrimination in sports. Its work shapes public attitudes about women's sports and athletes, supports organizations that get girls active, provides equal opportunities for girls and women, and encourages physically and emotionally healthy lifestyles.

The first part of an intern's day deals with activities in the foundation's information referral service, where the interns answer phones, respond to requests and refer people to other sources for information. The rest of the day is spent working with department supervisors to complete various projects. Past projects have included researching events, writing articles and helping to gather information related to distributing grants. Interns are assigned to education, fundraising, public relations, advocacy, special events, marketing, corporate relations, program management, communications, special events, publications, online media and athlete services.
