HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The first female to hold a coaching position in the National Football League will headline Montana’s next summit on equal pay.

Jennifer Welter - a preseason coaching intern for the Arizona Cardinals last year - is scheduled to give the keynote address at the Equal Pay Summit. The summit is set for May 2-3 at Montana State University in Bozeman.

ESPNW named Welter one of the 25 most influential women in sports in 2015.

Gov. Steve Bullock says the summit will partly focus on promoting leadership, support and education to bring women’s pay in parity with men. Bullock says Montana women make about 67 cents for every dollar made by men.

Bullock established the Equal Pay for Equal Work Task Force in 2013 to help address pay inequities.
