New York, NY, June 6, 2024 – Parity, the sports marketing and sponsorship platform dedicated to closing the gender income and opportunity gap in professional sports, is thrilled to announce that Elizabeth Montavon, Director of Athlete Marketing and Social Media has been named a winner in the SurveyMonkey Curiosity Awards. The awards program recognizes ten exceptional marketers at SurveyMonkey customer companies who are driving innovation and shaping the future of the industry. 


Elizabeth’s achievements in bridging dual identities as both a marketer and a nine-time National Champion professional water skier, spearheading impactful campaigns to close the gender income and opportunity in professional sports, and fostering a culture of continuous improvement through athlete feedback, demonstrate her commitment to marketing excellence and moving the industry forward.


“The SurveyMonkey customer base is vast and filled with companies and individuals who exemplify excellence every day by understanding the power of feedback,” said Eric Johnson, CEO at SurveyMonkey. “I’m honored to recognize the incredible talent of this year’s Curiosity Awards winners, who are pushing the boundaries of marketing and inspiring the next generation of talent in the field.” 


“Elizabeth is beyond deserving of this recognition. She consistently pushes herself to be innovative at work, stay on top of trends, and continue to move the needle for our company and pro women athletes much like herself,” said Alana Casner, SVP Business Development and Athlete Relations at Parity. “Everyday I’m grateful for Elizabeth’s commitment to her craft on our team as well as impressed with how she balances top level work and excellence as a pro water skier.” 



Elizabeth's creation of Team Parity, a rotating cohort of athletes from the 1,000-strong Parity community who serve as ambassadors for a five-month period, epitomizes her innovative spirit and commitment to advancing Parity’s mission. The successful culmination of the Team Parity pilot left a profound impact, significantly enhancing the organization's trajectory and reinforcing Parity’s dedication to women's sports. Elizabeth's keen curiosity spurred innovation within the team, driving them to explore new avenues of content creation and engagement. Through their collaborative efforts, Team Parity reached nearly 210,000 individuals, leaving an indelible mark on brand visibility and the athletes' professional trajectories. Additionally, Elizabeth's instrumental role in orchestrating Parity Week by Gainbridge® further underscores her ability to foster impactful initiatives. Parity Week was a dynamic celebration of women’s sports legends and current athletes, highlighted by dynamic media engagements and a robust social media presence. Through strategic management and collaboration with over 75 professional women athletes, Elizabeth and Parity successfully amplified the event’s impact, driving awareness of Gainbridge’s commitment to women’s sports investment and fostering meaningful connections. The recognition garnered by Parity Week's nomination for various awards in the marketing and sports spheres reflects Elizabeth's exceptional leadership and dedication to driving positive change within the industry.
