Angela Collins, Legal Director of the Professional Footballers Australia (PFA), is among the 14 women participating. Each has been asked to pick a mentor in the sports industry who will help them develop their careers.
FIFPRO spoke to Collins and Laura Sigal, who has agreed to be her mentor.
Collins has worked major negotiations for the PFA, including the 2019 landmark agreement that has given the women’s national team the same pay and conditions as their male counterparts.
Sigal began her legal career working for Major League Baseball’s player association in New York. In Australia, she has worked for several player unions since 2007 and is now deputy general secretary of the Australian Athletes Association.
We first spoke to Collins, who met Sigal at an industry event several years ago.
