The mission of the Sports Diversity Council is to be a resource and advocate for diversity and inclusion within the sports industry.

To create a sports industry where people from all races, orientations, genders and cultural backgrounds feel welcome and valued equally.
“Despite the amazing diversity we’re blessed with in this country, schools are still in large part segregated because of economic disparity. Sports are one of the few areas where kids are really given the opportunity to interact with those of different races and religions.”
