2019-2020 Toronto Raptors: Diversity and Inclusion for Sports Excellence

Placing the right talent in the right roles in the right system is a recipe for high-performance in both business and sports arenas. In partnership with The Sports Shop, The Diversity Movement is highlighting sports teams that draw on Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) as an ingredient to achieve excellence. This month, we turn our attention to the NBA given its leading role in implementing D&I practices. To find our winning team, we needed a way to define team diversity and used the number of international players on a team as an indicator. We selected teams that have 5 or more international players on their current rosters to demonstrate the impact of D&I on play (e.g., different culture, style of play)

Diverse teams that are fully engaged in decision making and execution are more innovative, more profitable, and more productive. The Diversity Movement, helps organizations of all types and sizes move beyond compliance-based thinking to a mindset that enables business transformation.
