Draymond Green, Chris Bosh headline NBA\'s efforts to empower women

Golden State’s Draymond Green is there for his mom, Mary Babers-Green, in whatever she wants to do.

“I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without my mom,” said Green, who is part of a joint campaign with the NBA and LeanIn.org that empowers women and encourages men to support women in their lives.

As a new dad to daughter Bernadette, Utah’s Gordon Hayward relishes the role he has in her life and understands the significance of the help he provides for his wife Robyn.

“It’s important to show that fathers have a big responsibility in their daughter’s lives,” Hayward said.

This is the second consecutive season the two sides have partnered, and this year, the campaign features an action plan for men to “lean in” and create better relationships and environments at home and in the workplace by standing up for gender equality and helping women succeed.

“We love partnering with the NBA because the players loom so large in the lives of men, and when they set the right examples, other people follow,” LeanIn founder and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg told USA TODAY Sports. “Equality is just not for women. It’s good for men. Men who work better with women in the workplace outperform their peers.
