MIAMI DOLPHINS JOINS PRO SPORTS ASSEMBLY

501c3 ORGANIZATION FOCUSES ON ADVANCING DIVERSE AND INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP IN PRO SPORTS; MIAMI DOLPHINS COMMITS TO HELP ADVANCE EQUITY AND ACHIEVE PARITY THROUGHOUT INDUSTRY




February 11, 2021 (New York, NY) -  In the spirit of community and unity, the Miami Dolphins today announced its pledge to join Pro Sports Assembly (“The Assembly”), a first-of-its-kind, industry-wide, and mission-driven 501(c)(3) organization for people who work in professional sports. The Miami Dolphins feature the NFL’s only Black head coach and Black general manager duo in Brian Flores and Chris Grier, and continue to remain committed to hiring diverse leaders and cultivating talent on the football and business side.  As a Silver-tier member, the Miami Dolphins will designate 30 of its employees to a member seat with The Assembly, who will have access to a number of professional development programs, events, tools and resources that can help advance their career in the sports industry. 

Designed to keep leagues, teams and unions both knowledgeable and accountable for delivering an equitable and profitable future in professional sports organizations – The Assembly is a member-led community that challenges its industry to advance truly inclusive leadership. It believes that by developing cultural and gender intelligence, as well as setting best practices of stewardship, mentorship and allyship, professional sports properties can drive innovation, bolster financial performance, capture new markets and increase brand loyalty. The Assembly is aggressive in its vision and stance to create the future of its industry through the #PowerofProSports, and aims by 2030 to achieve parity in opportunity, pay and leadership amongst its workforce.

Since its September 2020 launch, over 60 organizational and individual members have joined The Assembly, with member recruitment campaigns launching next month in partnership with Sports Business Journal.     

“Racial and gender equality is an utmost priority in our organization, and our leadership is committed to representing diversity while at the same time affecting social change,” says Jason Jenkins, SVP of Communications and Community Affairs.  “Intention is nothing without implementation, and the Miami Dolphins will continue to lead by example, on and off the field, and challenging the league-at-large to develop the future leaders of our sport.”

“We proudly welcome the Miami Dolphins to Pro Sports Assembly,” says Laura Dixon, Head of External Relations for Spurs Sports & Entertainment, and Founding Governing Board Member of Pro Sports Assembly. “Their organization has shown a strong commitment to community and cultural inclusivity, and we look forward to working with them to develop and advance new standards for our industry at large.”
