Frantz Cayo '95, BET Experience, moderates a panel discussion on the role of sports in advancing social justice, diversity and inclusion, as part of Cornell Sports & Entertainment Week.

Diversity and Inclusion within sports and entertainment is not just the right thing to do, but also good business. D&I allows organizations to reach expanded audiences in authentic and organic ways. Long before Colin Kaepernick took a knee to protest police brutality, sports have drawn attention to civil rights while acting as an economic engine. Modern organizations have an imperative to focus on hiring and retaining underrepresented groups while allowing every voice to acknowledge and amplify issues that color our world, in parallel with driving consumer interest in diverse ways. Doing the right thing leads to economic success. This panel discusses all of these issues and what we can do as Cornellians to make a difference.

Cornell Sports & Entertainment Week (Oct 12-16, 2020) is a virtual event series for inspiring the next generation of Cornellians to pursue careers in these interrelated and dynamic fields. Cornell students and alumni will interact in immersive online sessions that surface the biggest topics and trends in sports and entertainment. It’s all about learning and networking with accomplished alumni from premiere organizations like the NFL, MLB, NBA, Netflix, HBO, and NBCUniversal. Cornell Sports & Entertainment Week is produced by the ILR Alumni Association Sports & Entertainment Executives (SEE) in celebration of the ILR School’s 75th Anniversary and open to all Cornell students and alumni.
