Growing the game for girls and women all around the world. That’s what it continues to be about.
Xbox is Growing the Game and Paving the Way For Female Athletes
This past Friday, Team Xbox was kind enough to invite us out to the Atlanta Dream vs New York Liberty matchup to help them celebrate their dynamic Power Your Dreams platform, which extends into the world of women’s sports with Power Her Dreams, the title of a new video content piece that debuted on Wednesday 7/20.
The Power Her Dreams video is narrated by Vanessa Bryant, and features WNBA powerhouse players Sabrina Ionescu and Rhyne Howard, among others, who have taken steps to make their dreams come true through a mix of strength, struggle, sacrifice, success, and everything in between.
To put Power Her Dreams into action, Xbox is inviting fans to share their dreams on the Power Her Dreams website and nominate one of two charities that Xbox will pay it forward with a $10 per-dream donation to either Mamba & Mambacita Foundation or Girls Who Code from July 20 to September 30.
Speaking of the Dream vs Liberty game, Xbox highlighted a select number of the submitted dreams and displayed them on the Atlanta Dream home court which was super cool. As for the game itself, it was super fun and high energy. The energy in the Dream building is definitely different than it has been in the past. The Dream even had Travis Porter perform during halftime which is about as Atlanta as you can get!
Friday night’s game was just another example of how Xbox is dedicated to helping uplift and support the next generation of women leaders and their dreams. Whether it’s stepping onto basketball’s highest stage, snagging the spotlight as the next big name in streaming, or captivating a continent with a summer of soccer, it’s fundamental to support amazing female achievements and help bring those dreams into reality.
This summer, Xbox is launching programs with the England Senior Women’s Football Team, the France Senior Women’s Football Team, the Atlanta Dream, the NY Liberty, and some amazing talent including Vanessa Bryant, to inspire the next generation of women gamers and athletes to dream big.
This game was one of the first steps of Xbox’s commitment to amplifying representation of women in sports and gaming.
Make sure to keep up with Xbox for more updates in the future.
