MLB embraces diversity as a Latino. What been you experiences regarding Latinos in the “front office” growing the fan base and outreach to the Latino community?

I sat down recently to have a chat with Anthony Pardo. Anthony is Director of Partnership Activation for Major League Baseball. He has been with MLB for 14 years and had some interesting insights into his day-to-day work, how he attained his position, and his thoughts on MLB’s dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic going forward, fans returning, etc. We cover all of that and more in this video.

Anthony is a nice and enjoyable young man. I enjoyed doing this interview with him. He wears multiple hats at MLB. He shared how MLB is making strides diversity and inclusion strides with Business Resource Groups (BRG). As a Latino Anthony, U.S. born Ecudorian-American shared progress and insights on diversity and inclusion.

MLB Diversity & Inclusion and BRGs:

In 2017, the MLB Central Office launched its Business Resource Groups (BRG). MLB established business resource groups to provide employees with a forum to gather with other employees who hold common interests, identities and/or social issues.

The BRGs support the league’s business objectives by fostering business development, serving as a valuable support mechanism, creating a forum for career development opportunities and promoting cultural awareness. The nine BRGs that were created include the following: Athletes to Executives, Asian BRG, Black Professionals BRG, Home Base BRG, MLB H.Y.P.E., MVP BRG, MLB PRIDE, MLB Women and SOMOS BRG.
