WELCOME TO SVG DIVERSITY & INCLUSION…
SVG’s home for you to connect, learn, and share ideas, resources, and more as our industry improves its efforts related to diversity and inclusion.
SVG Diversity & Inclusion was created in response to a pressing need in the sports production community to better reflect a diverse culture. By doing so the community not only becomes richer spiritually but the content becomes better, the work environment stronger, and the workforce happier and more productive.
Sports production is in a unique position to lead the charge when it comes to diversity. The athletes are diverse, the on-air talent is diverse, and the viewership is diverse. It is our goal to take advantage of all of that diversity and inclusion and ensure that the production side of the industry reflects societal diversity in a meaningful way.
HBCU Bridge, a joint effort between the Sports Video Group (SVG) and YoSy Media, is designed to connect the sports production and technology community with HBCU (Historically Black College and University) students or recent graduates, providing unique career and educational opportunities.
At the core of HBCU Bridge are HBCU Bridge Commitments, which are made by media organizations, leagues, teams, and technology service providers. The Commitment begins with the application submission process, explaining the opportunity for the student (or recent graduate), including details like timeframe, commitment, compensation, and location.
HBCU Bridge helps SVG member and sponsor organizations find students or recent graduates who are ideal fits for a given position. Rather than having to sort through dozens or hundreds of applications from interested students, the HBCU Bridge team will contact school administration officials to find the best qualified candidates for a given position.
