When Megan Rapinoe announced her retirement from soccer, her statement was quintessentially Megan. She was filled with joy and appreciation, thanking her family, friends, teammates and coaches for a lifetime of support. She also expressed gratitude for having been one member of “a generation of players who undoubtedly left the game better than they found it.”

Being buoyant, quick to turn the spotlight on others and enduringly focused on improving the world around her is what made Megan a great teammate on and off the pitch. These qualities are also what make her a great teammate at Trusaic, where she serves as our chief equality officer. Through this role, she’s able to continue the fight for pay equity she’s been championing for years—a fight that’s far from over.
