TPG Selects The Other Boys of Summer to Launch Black History Month

We were excited to be chosen by TPG to kick off their Black History Month 2020 programming. They hosted the program at the Museum of Arts & Design in NYC. Co-CEO Jon Winkelried moderated a panel discussion after the film with Lauren Meyer, Film Director and Pedro Sierra, the last Negro Leaguer to be signed to an MLB contract and report to Spring Training. The program was streamed to their offices in London, Fort Worth and San Francisco. This was our first "international" program. Employees shared with us how they really enjoyed having an original Diversity & Inclusion program that was timely and left them inspired. Following the program Anilu Vazquez-Ubarri, TPG Partner and Chief Human Resource Officer, posted the following on LinkedIN: " "We are using storytelling to get us to understand each other’s stories and contributions. Highly recommend The Other Boys of Summer."

Big thank you to Anilu and everyone who attended The Other Boys of Summer.

This is an important story that deserves to be shared. Together we can unite communities and expand the reach of these inspiring stories. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Negro Leagues. Join us in celebrating the legacy and honoring these civil rights trailblazers.
