This year, IndyBar leadership is placing an emphasis on equality, diversity and inclusion. The Sports & Entertainment Law Section is in the process of developing an EDI plan for our group. This month, Corporate Counsel magazine highlighted NASCAR’s legal department. Their team has skillfully helped the company navigate several racial controversies in the past year and serves as an example of what a diverse in-house sports team can look like. The article discusses how the department has driven inclusivity through their internship program and recruitment, while also prioritizing a culture that retains talented lawyers.
