The Business of Diversity in Sports and Entertainment (BDSE), in conjunction with the National Sports Forum, recognizes the need for more programs supporting the importance of diversity in the front office. The NSF aims to increase the opportunities for up-and-coming ethnic minority and/or women sports professionals to have access to the senior-level best practices of revenue generating responsibilities within the industry and networking opportunities that have set the NSF apart.
The BDSE program is organized and run by a committee of individuals in the industry who have a strong desire to support and grow the diversity initiative within the sports and entertainment industry. The committee is responsible for reviewing and selecting the 32 members of the 2019 BDSE Cohort.
