The Atlanta Braves and Truist are committed to creating and sustaining a diverse workforce in all areas of the game, both in baseball and business operations. The creation of the Henry Aaron Fellowship, serves as a platform to welcome and develop the next generation of diverse executive-level sports business leaders.
Most notably recognized as the Home Run King, Henry “Hank” Aaron broke the most hallowed record in sports in 1974 on his way to a career 755 home runs. As a player, he had many on-field accolades, but he also had an immense impact off-the-field as a business executive, entrepreneur, and advocate for racial equity and social justice.
To honor his passion of expanding diversity across the sport, the Henry Aaron Fellowship is a dedicated position, designed to support the pipeline of candidates who are interested in becoming the next senior-level executive of a Major League Baseball club.
The Henry Aaron Fellow will be working with the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Atlanta Braves, along with day-to-day operations of various departments within the organization. The Henry Aaron Fellow will be provided an overview and in-office experience of executive leadership and develop tools necessary for leading and operating the various lines of business within a major league sports franchise.
