The Chicago White Sox and Major League Baseball are teaming up to co-sponsor the first ever "MLB Diversity Business Summit". The summit, which will give attendees access to Human Resource and Procurement executives from all 30 MLB Clubs, MLB Network, MLBAM and Minor League Baseball, will take place in Chicago on July 24th. "Major League Baseball is pleased to co-­host the MLB Diversity Business Summit, giving our game another opportunity to connect with a diverse pool of individuals and businesses," said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig. "I thank the Chicago White Sox for their support and hospitality, and we hope that everyone involved will benefit from the direct interaction afforded by this inaugural event." The agenda for the event, which can be found here, will include league-wide networking, exhibit floor access, presentations, workshops, and roundtable discussions. "The Diversity of Major League Baseball is important to Commissioner Selig on-field as well as throughout our entire business," said Wendy Lewis, Senior Vice President, Diversity & Strategic Alliances. "The MLB Diversity Business Summit will connect a diverse and inclusive group of individuals with Human Resource, Procurement and other executives throughout the industry. We are looking forward to welcoming the many talented students, professionals and business owners who will participate in this groundbreaking event.
