This program seeks to identify, develop and grow the pool of qualified minority and female candidates for on-field and baseball operations positions throughout the industry. Each MLB Club under the program is required to provide a plan for increasing the diversity of its staff, including a hiring plan and a plan for developing existing diverse employees to assume higher positions at Clubs.
MLB announced the launch of its MLB Diversity Fellowship Program, a new approach to expand the talent pool of future industry leaders. The program was open to people of color and women, a direct and dedicated initiative to change the pipeline and include more people of color and women. The program provides the opportunity for young, diverse professionals to experience front office positions that have been traditionally influential in baseball operations decisions. This distinct opportunity will place candidates in entry-level roles within one of the MLB Clubs and MLB's Central Office. The Club-based program consists of an 18-to-24-month commitment in a front office or baseball operations role at one of the MLB Clubs around the country participating in the MLB Diversity Fellowship Program.
The MLB on Deck Diversity in Sales program is designed to provide participants a jumpstart in their sales careers through a series of training sessions and consideration for entry-level sales opportunities across Major League Baseball (MLB) and Minor League Baseball (MiLB) entities. With a focus on engaging with underrepresented participants, MLB aims to grow the diversity and visibility of these groups within the industry, by placing individuals who successfully complete this program directly into hiring pipelines with clubs.
Participants will take part in an eight-week-long program aimed at providing the basic tools, knowledge and understanding of the ticket sales world, giving them a distinct advantage in the interview process for entry-level sales positions. Participants will attend weekly virtual training sessions led by members of the MLB Ticketing Department in addition to sales executives from across MLB. By the conclusion of the program, participants will be placed in the pipeline for all MLB and MiLB Clubs to access and engage with when looking to fill new entry-level sales positions.
