Through a public crisis, it became clear that the Dallas Mavericks was not a great place to work for women and people of color.
Gail O’Bannon, Dallas Mavericks, Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion & Equity
I often describe diversity as being invited to the party, while inclusion is being asked to dance. Belonging is knowing that one is wanted on the dance floor and equity is being given the tools and resources needed to fully participate. This CEO Act!on Pledge challenges us to do our jobs as leaders. That job is to teach ALL people how to dance. I’m happy to now lend a hand to sports, enabling ALL to participate at ALL levels and in ALL capacities.
