Nike BHM LinkedIn Live Event

About this Conversation

The conversation surrounding racial inequality has gained much needed attention and amplification from people and organizations throughout the sports industry.

Black History Month is a time for celebration, remembrance, continuing the push for racial equality, and sustaining momentum so that we can enact meaningful change.

Nike in particular has taken a three-pronged approach towards recognizing Black History Month in 2022, and engaging the black community for years to come.

Tune in on February, 24th at 12 p.m. ET as Ernest Baker, Editor-in-Chief at Front Office Sports sits down with Jarvis Sam, Vice President of Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Nike to discuss how the company is both celebrating the black community and continuing the fight against racial inequality through three areas of initiatives:

  • The Black Community Commitment
  • 2022 Black History Month Product Launch
