Join us for a panel discussion on diversity and inclusion, social justice and what comes after the pandemic. This program will connect students and the broader WSU community to the professional sports world to discuss important topics as we look to the future. Our guest speakers will share different perspectives on how their organizations are making a positive impact, addressing diversity and inclusion within the industry, and tackling social justice issues.
