Parker has previously stood for women having leadership positions such as coaches, general managers and team presidents in the league. "For a league that's 80% women of color with zero African American coaches, I don't know if it's a coincidence," Parker said as mentioned in an ESPN report. "I think we're a league that does get out in the community and talks about social justice reform and speaks about and posts during Pride Month and Green Week. At the end of the day, we need to back it up with actions." Tweeting about her casual yet affirmative personality, a fan tweeted, “And also doing all of this in pajama pants and flip flops....I meannnn goals right? we stan a comfy queen handling business.”
