iSportLearn have announced a new partnership with Diversity in the Business of Sport (DiBS).
DiBS is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to increase diversity amongst professionals working in the sports business industry. DiBS currently runs a mentoring platform where hand-picked cohorts of young black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) professionals who have recently entered, or who are on the cusp of entering, the sports business industry, are given a unique opportunity to receive free mentoring from senior BAME industry professionals.
As part of the partnership, iSportLearn will donate the equivalent of £5000 worth of courses to help the first cohort of mentees at DiBS expand their knowledge and skill-set in numerous sectors of the sports business industry.
Joe Condon, Head of Brand Development & Marketing said “A crucial objective of iSportLearn is to provide practical education and a pathway for those outside and inside our industry that have so far lacked the opportunities to enter or progress their careers within the sports business”.
“From speaking with Alex and understanding the great work they are doing by mentoring the young leaders of tomorrow, we were more than delighted to be able to support and aid in their development”.
Alex Norman, one of the founders of DiBS, comments “We’re incredibly grateful and happy to be able to partner with iSportLearn to give our mentees access to a wide range of resources on the sports business industry. Turbocharging the industry knowledge of our mentees is one of the key aims of our mentoring programme, and these are great resources to help us further that aim”.
iSportLearn was launched in May 2021 as an all-new global education platform which aims to change the sports industry for the better by giving young people from diverse backgrounds an affordable opportunity to gain valuable practical knowledge from industry leaders.
The courses featured on iSportLearn cover the most important areas in the business of sport such as Sponsorship, Data and Analytics and Governance, featuring more than 50 leaders from the NBA, Formula 1, LaLiga, FIFA, Facebook and other global sports organisations.
