We deeply appreciate and are indebted to everyone who came forward to share their experiences and shape the Sally Yates report, including our own players and employees. The findings are both distressing and sobering. Abusive behavior and sexual harassment have no place in any environment. There can be no progress until we can guarantee the safety and security of our players and commit to an open dialogue where everyone is heard.
While we have made strides as an organization, we fully accept our responsibility to our players, employees, and fans to do and be better every day. Our club is dedicated to and will continue to cooperate with the NWSL and NWSLPA’s joint investigation. We embrace the recommendations of the Sally Yates report and pledge to work collaboratively with the NWSL, our fellow clubs, and the Players Association to improve the culture for our athletes.
