2023 Global Conference

Sports for Social Impact

Tuesday, May 2, 2023
04:00 PM - 05:00 PM PDT
Beverly Hilton - Sunset Pavilion

The world of sports has the potential to leave a lasting positive legacy in our communities, with many athletes, sports leaders, and investors using their platforms for public good. Athletes are often viewed as heroes through the eyes of their fans. Their social activism and justice work has helped drive positive societal change and contribute to wellbeing, tolerance, and greater awareness of social issues. Join us for a panel with athletes, former athletes, sports leaders, investors, and philanthropists to discuss the social issues at hand today and the role sports play in creating a more equitable society.
