Leveraging the Power of Sport to Advance Equity

Are you leveraging your core competency and the power of your brand to advance equity? How can you advance equity while also achieving business goals? This interactive session will explore the journey of the professional sports team, the Portland Trail Blazers, as they learned to leverage the power of sport to create sustainable equity practices while also maximizing the business impact of their equity journey.
