ACTION PLAN / THE PLAYBOOK

ENOUGH. seeks to empower everyone inside the arena of professional sports to raise their voices and speak out concerning  antiquated hiring practices that suppress opportunities for minority professionals.  ENOUGH. will start a national dialogue to connect with and educate influencers, leaders, and participants across a multitude of spectrums.

This unique partnership of the Hue Jackson Foundation and ENOUGH. takes on two contemporary societal challenges, human trafficking, and social injustice. This interwoven organization approach, will use some of the following approaches:

ENOUGH. seeks to improve the talent acquisition practices to eradicate any implicit or overt bias. An inventory of the entire hiring process will help discover how these processes are failing Black applicants. 

-

ENOUGH. will mentor a talent pool of Black and Brown professionals to ensure they have the resources they need at each stage of their career to reach their fullest potential.

-

ENOUGH. aims to become a facilitator of a talent pipeline working with the Hue Jackson Foundation to form a network of emerging Black and Brown professionals that will continue acting in the capacity of mentors and leaders within their own communities.

-

ENOUGH. will engender equity through empowerment by partnering with the Hue Jackson Foundation and generating connections between and among minority professionals to create an  environment that fosters collaboration. This access is paramount in framing a network and talent pool of Black and Brown people that have not had access to current hiring paths in the sports industry.

-

ENOUGH. will ensure that any new recruitment/hiring system is transparent, sustainable, and  long-range and is supported with sufficient, stable, broad-based, and equitable resources. 

-

ENOUGH. realizes that endeavoring to be a truly inclusive and diverse business is not a one-time event; it is an  ongoing process requiring a system wide commitment. Meaningful change can only be realized when goals are understood, measurable, and embodied by all stakeholders. More importantly, perhaps, is that all stakeholders have to know what role they play in achieving these goals. 

-

ENOUGH. will succeed as a collaborative initiative by developing close relationships with a network of advocates, individuals, and broad-based coalitions throughout the country. These collaborations strengthen ENOUGH’s work, expand the message, and ultimately enable this endeavor to successfully provoke meaningful change. 

-

ENOUGH. will forward our collective goal of equity of access to opportunities for Black and Brown people. Equal access issues have historically been under-addressed and under-identified in professional sports in general and in the field of Football specifically.
