The NFL is making an attempt to get women involved in the league by creating more job opportunities for females to work as both scouts and coaches. Following in the wake of that commitment, the NFL has reportedly invited Oscar-winning actress, Reese Witherspoon, to speak at the annual owners meetings coming up next week.

This is a positive step the league is taking to ensure women can find opportunities to work in a field primarily dominated by males and to get women more involved in general.
The annual NFL owners meetings start on Sunday, March 26 in Phoenix, Arizona. One of the first things they will address is a vote on the Oakland Raiders’ proposed move to Las Vegas, which you can read more about here.
Back to Witherspoon, it will be exciting to hear what she has to say when she addresses the women’s gathering that is on the schedule.
