Minor League Baseball will unveil a mentoring program meant to help mentor future women executives on how to help run a baseball team. This is a very exciting moment for women in sports. For years, women professionals have been on the outside looking in when it comes to executive positions in major sports.
The LIFT (Leaders Inspiring Future Talent) will help build content communication with women professionals. These women will be partnered with a female mentor, known as Lifters, who have been apart of the industry for 4 or more years. This program would help bring the next generation of female sports executives into baseball.
The program have already begun to select and pair up mentor and mentee for the 2019 season. The pairing is based on career interest, job task, and work history.
