FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
In December of 2016, the Minnesota Timberwolves & Lynx began accepting applications for the newly developed fellowship program available to college graduates. The objective of the program is to help close the gender gap in the workplace and grow future leaders within our organization.
The fellow will participate in eight, six-week business rotations. The business units will include marketing, public relations, ticket sales, membership services, corporate partnership sales, corporate partnership activation, business intelligence and live programming and entertainment. The experience will also include one-on-one mentoring, executive-level coaching and a glimpse into basketball operations.
Timberwolves & Lynx CEO Ethan Casson
“The sports industry has historically under-represented women and our goal is to create a more inclusive and diverse workplace. We’re committed to closing the gender gap and growing future leaders within our organization. We want this fellowship to give a holistic view of working for a professional sports organization and help the fellow gain the experiences necessary to be prepared for a career in any area of the business.”
