In this spirit, we have joined forces with Learfield. They share these fundamental values, and together, our collaboration has made a substantial impact on the lives of marginalized youth.
Learfield’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Learfield’s dedication to DE&I transcends rhetoric; it’s woven into the fabric of their corporate culture. As a prominent intercollegiate athletics media and technology services player, Learfield understands that DE&I must permeate every aspect of their business interactions and operations. This alignment with our values at Believe in Me is significant. Learfield actively reshapes its internal and external programs to cultivate a more diverse and inclusive company culture, which directly mirrors our mission to provide equal opportunities for every child. Furthermore, Learfield recognizes its influential role in shaping the industry’s focus on DE&I and supporting underrepresented communities, echoing our commitment to empowering marginalized youth.
Certified Supplier Program
Learfield’s Certified Supplier Program is a testament to their commitment to bolstering small, diverse-owned businesses. They acknowledge that these businesses are the lifeblood of the U.S. economy and the bedrock of vibrant and thriving communities. Their passion resonates deeply with Believe in Me’s ethos, as we believe that empowering youths, irrespective of their backgrounds, strengthens the foundation of our society. By actively seeking out and collaborating with qualified small and diverse-owned businesses, Learfield contributes significantly to economic growth and inclusivity, a mission closely aligned with our efforts to provide a nurturing environment for all children.
The EDGE Academy, previously known as the Learfield IMG College Minority Academy, is a pioneering initiative that has played a pivotal role in nurturing the growth and development of young women and men of color in the collegiate sports industry since its inception in 2014. This initiative reflects their commitment to providing opportunities for underrepresented individuals. In collaboration with MOAA, this program offers practical training and prospects, forging pathways for individuals from underrepresented backgrounds to excel in the collegiate sports sector, a mission that echoes our dedication to empowering marginalized youth.
Learfield goes beyond internal initiatives, dedicating itself to fostering a more diverse and inclusive workplace. They achieve this by creating awareness programs that shed light on job opportunities in collegiate sports nationwide, with a particular emphasis on underrepresented communities. This commitment to inclusivity mirrors our unwavering belief in equal opportunities for all children, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances. Learfield’s efforts to highlight job opportunities within underrepresented communities resonate with our mission to provide a nurturing community and support system for marginalized youth.
