Minor League Baseball Diversity Initiative
The goal of the Minor League Baseball Diversity (MiLB) Initiative is to advocate for the diversification of the game and business of baseball.
In 2009, MiLB laid the foundation for a comprehensive, five-category initiative designed to diversify the industry by addressing racial and gender diversity within ownership groups, executive management teams, employment, fan bases and business-to-business relationships. As the focus on diversity and inclusion in sports continues to grow, MiLB has taken progressive steps to increase awareness of where we stand as an industry with regards to our efforts to diversify business practices, identify areas with room for improvement and strategically advance our Diversity Initiative. Furthermore, we strive to create a professional and entertainment environment that is accessible and enjoyed by all members of our communities regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, background or any other factor that may seem to make us different.
