Don’t wait until the new year. Now is the time to get started!
The Sports Diversity Council (SDC) is a non-profit organization, founded to promote diversity & inclusion within the professional sports industry. Our goal is to unify sports leagues, teams, agencies and business professionals to achieve a common goal. Through a series of collaborative meetings, trainings and public events, The Sports Diversity Council offers the opportunity to participate in the dialogue necessary to establish true equity for sports professionals of all backgrounds.
To be a resource and advocate for Diversity & Inclusion as well as Racial Justice in the Sports Industry. We strive to transform sports communities into an environment where all affiliated individuals can respect individual differences, and succeed as they experience true inclusion in a changing global community.
To create a sports industry where people from all races, orientations, genders and cultural backgrounds feel welcome and valued equally.

“Sports in America has always been an avenue for bringing people from different background, cultures and languages together. That is why I started the Sports Diversity Council (SDC). The SDC serves as a Diversity & Inclusion resource for the sports industry.”

Steve Kerr

“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.”
