- Engage in educational, legislative, social welfare, community or other activities that will advance and safeguard the economic security and general welfare of WNBA players, during and after their playing careers.
- Enter into cooperative efforts, such as those with other labor unions, women’s groups and charitable entities the WNBPA deems to be in the best interest of its members.
- Provide a myriad of services and support mechanisms to its members, including agent certification, legal representation/arbitration services, player programs, contract negotiation assistance and a liaison with team management.
- Provide programs designed to advance the employment, social and post-playing lives of WNBPA members, including graduate school tuition reimbursement, off-season internships, financial planning, mental health support, substance abuse education and career management.
