Standing Up For Equality

We believe in the power of sport to unite and inspire people to take action in their communities. We are committed to fostering an inclusive culture at Nike and to breaking down barriers for all athletes. Cande’s story is a great example of how sport brings people together and what can happen when we stand up for what’s right.

Breaking Barriers Through Sport

Every generation, athletes come along who are not just forces on the field, but drivers of global social change. Chris Mosier — the first transgender athlete to make a men’s U.S. National Team — is one of those athletes. Hear his story in the new documentary, The Chris Mosier Project, made in partnership with a Nike Pride grant.
