To Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Atlanta Hawks and State Farm Arena are committed to being a valued community asset that champions diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels for those we entertain and employ. We focus on driving that commitment through Voter Access, Economic Empowerment, and Community Partnerships. Within the city of Atlanta, a melting pot of different backgrounds and beliefs, our organization strives to be a reflection of the various walks of life that call this great city home.
To the Community
The Atlanta Hawks organization focuses on positively impacting the lives of Atlantans through providing access to youth basketball, curating community programming, fighting food insecurity, and recently transforming State Farm Arena into Georgia's largest-ever voting precinct for the 2020 elections. We align our foundation, corporate and community partners, employees and Hawks players to build bridges through basketball with a commitment to always be True to Atlanta.
As an organization we are focused on being true to our community and committing to sustainable practices that lessen our environmental footprint. In 2009 State Farm Arena (formerly Philips Arena) was the first NBA arena to be awarded LEED Certification for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance.
State Farm Arena is currently on track to become a Zero Waste facility. The 2021 NBA All-Star Game that was held at State Farm Arena became the FIRST Zero Waste NBA game in history.
