Katie Sowers is a woman of firsts. She is not only the first woman to coach for the San Francisco 49ers, she is the first woman to coach in the NFL Playoffs, and on February 2, she will become the first woman to coach in the Super Bowl. Her story is empowering and inspiring for the next generation of girls and women, and for anybody who aspires to lead. But unlike Jackie Robinson, Billie Jean King, and other game-changing leaders in sports, too few people know Sowers’ story. That is why Microsoft and McCann New York worked with director Peter Berg of production house Film 47 to show Sowers telling her own story, from a backyard in Kansas City all the way to the pinnacle of the NFL, in a way that will inspire us all. And she will tell it in this commercial on the NFL’s biggest stage—the Super Bowl. 

The Big Game spot is an extension of the “We All Win” campaign from 2019, which featured the line “When everybody plays, we all win.”
