Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Here at Leaders we also recognise the power that sport has to connect people and create change, which is why we are delighted to bring you a series of events, Women In Sport and Black Excellence, that aim to champion excellence in diversity within the industry, accelerate the pace of change and inspire the next generation of sports executives.
250 industry professionals will gather at Facebook’s offices in London on 31 October to celebrate the talented black individuals who work off the pitch to make the industry what it is today. The event will provide a positive, energetic environment to share best practise and expand individuals’ networks and knowledge.
