A Beacon of Inspiration

TBD TBD

“Sport has the power to change the world,” Nelson Mandela famously said addressing the first Laureus World Sports Awards Ceremony in Monaco nearly 20 years ago. The apartheid prisoner turned president of South Africa understood that sport is not just an industry, but it serves as a beacon to all races, creeds and genders that look to it for inspiration. Today, there are more people of color, women and LBGT participating in sports than ever before. So why is diversity hiring not keeping pace? Here to discuss his perspective is a leading expert who once served on the outside as an executive recruiter and now serves on the inside as a corporate diversity thought leader.
