NSHSS members are afforded with an unprecedented opportunity to attend the MLB Diversity Business Summit, co-hosted by Major League Baseball and the Houston Astros, on June 18-19, 2013 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
This sports employment and business opportunity career and trade fair provides job seekers with a unique opportunity to network directly with decision-makers for employment and business opportunities at Major and Minor Clubs, as well as those from MLB media outlets. The event includes a keynote speech by Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig, league-wide networking, access to exhibits, workshops and executive roundtable discussions. This memorable day concludes with an evening reception at Minute Maid Park and the Houston Astros versus the Milwaukee Brewers.
“Diversity is essential to our sport and remains a core priority of Major League Baseball,” said Commissioner Selig. “Major League and Minor League rosters reflect players of many different backgrounds through our game. Away from the field, the MLB Diversity Business Summit is a key platform, allowing us to offer unprecedented networking access to talented individuals who are interested in baseball careers and business opportunities.”
