Serena Williams will always be known as one of the greatest athletes the world has ever seen. She’s also a woman whose business interests include a namesake clothing line featured on the Home Shopping Network, an ownership stake of the Miami Dolphins and endorsement deals with brands such as Nike, Delta Airlines, and Pepsi. This week, Serena’s influence into the business world expands as she and celebrities including Russell and Ciara Wilson, Chuck D, Karlie Kloss, Zac Posen and others join the inaugural global Board of Advisors for Oath. Williams will serve as the Chairwoman of Oath’s Board of Advisors.
Oath is a subsidiary of Verizon and owns iconic media brands including HuffPost, Yahoo Finance, RYOT, Tumblr, MAKERS, Yahoo Sports and Yahoo Lifestyle.
Oath’s Board of Advisors were selected for their track record of building successful brands and philanthropic foundations. As Advisors, the group will share their brand expertise with Oath leadership.
Also, the companies philanthropic and social impact arm, Oath for Good, will work closely with each Advisor, providing significant financial and volunteer contributions to the cause of their choice. Advisors will also have access to Oath’s global user base to build content relevant to their passion issues. For Serena Williams, that means support of The William Sisters Fund’s newest initiative the Yetunde Price Resource Center housed in Compton, California.
