The report states that the NBA league office has the best record for people of color in men’s professional sports at a 36.4 percent employment rate.
The league, which was first to have three team owners who are people of color, now has seven women who served as team presidents/CEOs during the 2017-2018 season – the highest among men’s professional sports.
