Sports Jobs: Second Annual MLB Diversity Business Summit

Major League Baseball and the Houston Astros will co-host the second annual MLB Diversity Business Summit on June 19th at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

The business summit will provide those who attend with numerous opportunities to socialize with executives from all 30 MLB Clubs, MLB Network, MLB Advanced Media, Minor League Baseball Clubs and MLB’s Central Office.

This opportunity will allow sports job seekers to network directly with decision-makers for employment and business opportunities at Major and Minor Clubs, as well as those from MLB media entities.

The agenda for the event will include a keynote speech by Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, league-wide networking, exhibit floor access, workshops and executive roundtable discussions.

“Diversity is essential to our sport and remains a core priority of Major League Baseball,” said Selig.

“Major League and Minor League rosters reflect players of many different backgrounds throughout our game.  Away from the field, the MLB Diversity Business Summit is a key platform, allowing us to offer unprecedented networking access to talented individuals who are interested in baseball careers and business opportunities.”

Astros owner Jim Crane was also excited about the event.
“Diversity is vital for MLB, the Astros and the city of Houston to thrive.  We are proud to co-host this year’s MLB Diversity Business Summit,” said Crane.

The first MLB Diversity Business Summit was co-hosted by MLB and the Chicago White Sox in 2012, and attracted more than 800 registrants from across the US.
