Legends Diversity & Inclusion:
Legends is proud to celebrate diversity and inclusion as a key part of our culture and DNA at Legends. Our people are at the heart of our success and all that we continue to accomplish within our industry. In 2019, we launched a Diversity, Inclusion & Growth platform to help ensure that we continue to make diversity and inclusion a strategic priority across our organization. This includes being intentional about the recruitment of people from all different backgrounds, identities, genders, and ethnicities, while continuing to enhance our work culture to support and foster a sense of belonging for all Legends team members.
About Global Sales Training Camp:
In 2020 Legends set out on a mission to give back to the industry that has been great to us during challenging times by providing this new platform to share the foundational sales skills with recent graduates, entry-level sports sales professionals, and those seeking to transition to sports from other industries. In keeping with our company’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, a major goal of the training camp was to ensure representation of diverse participants, specifically women and people of color which we succeeded in doing.
The Legends Global Sales Training Camp will build off the success and key learnings from 2020 to provide another unique opportunity for our company to serve our industry through this educational platform.
Our exciting initiative will continue to leverage Legends’ best-in-class industry experts and acumen across all aspects of the sports industry to create a truly unique learning experience for all participants covering areas such as:
- Sports Business Industry Overview
- Ticket Sales Best Practices
- Corporate Partnership Overview
- Career Search & Interview Preparation
The program, which is cost-free for selected participants, will further emphasize “The Legends Way” and our commitment to service. A limited number of participants will be selected for this unique seven-week program, which will be conducted live via web-based video conference platforms.
