Race in the Sports Agent world
Since Martin Luther King, Jr. day is right around the corner, I dug up an article from espn.com on Feb. 28th of last year that deals with race in the Sports Agent world. Agents of change see slow progress in sports
I find it interesting that the big Sports Agencies (IMG, ProServ, Octagon, etc.) still give black Sports Agents a tough time gaining entrance into those companies. In today’s day-and-age, I think that these corporations are making a huge mistake by making such a barrier to entry for blacks and for women as well. I think that in the future it will be important to surround yourself around a variety of personalities so that each client may relate more personally to a certain agent on your team.
