The Green Bay Packers, the Milwaukee Brewers and Milwaukee Bucks have conjoined to form the Equity League.
Each major sports organization will unite to bring access, equity to minority founders and social impact startups. This unification marks the first time these three sports organizations have partnered for shared motives of fostering positive social change in Wisconsin and the United States. Microsoft and Titletown Tech will also be recognized as partners and will add to the mission of empowering every individual and every organization on the planet to achieve more. The idea of the league started with Mark Murphy, president and CEO of the Green Bay Packers.“The shared values between the Packers, Bucks, Brewers, Microsoft and TitletownTech is what made this possible. It’s time for us to step up and I’m proud we are taking a bigger role to focus on driving meaningful change and bridging a significant gap for social impact companies and minority founders,” said Murphy. The founding principle of Equity League is to present equality for all walks of life regardless of race, gender or demographic location.
