The data from several studies is clear: More diverse workplaces lead to better returns to the bottomline for businesses - Yet women representation in the sports industry at the executive level is less than 12% if you are looking at leagues, teams and technology companies. How do sports industry leaders bring more diversity onto their own teams, understanding that diversity breeds innovation? This panel will highlight the women and men who are working to level the playing field, igniting an inclusive conversation around intentional initiatives that will produce more innovative and successful business results and extend opportunities not readily available before to minorities.
