BetMGM has partnered with The Tom Joyner Foundation to offer an Executive Series to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
The partnership between the operator and the group behind scholarship distribution and fundraising for HBCUs will begin this autumn, and will offer HBCU students the opportunity to “network with BetMGM executives and navigate the recruitment process” in preparation for career opportunities at the company after graduation.
The Executive Series will comprise executive-student panels, professional resume critiques, and job interview preparation, with the workshops to help graduating seniors pursue roles in HR, Finance, Legal, Marketing, and Product Design among others.
Founded in 1998 by former nationally syndicated radio personality Tom Joyner, the foundation aims to support HBCUs with scholarships, endowments and capacity-building enhancements. It has also recommended internships, and offered matching grant support and career development to deserving students.
“Our goal has been to keep students in school, and it is critical that we ensure their success after graduation through phenomenal partnerships with organisations such as BetMGM,” said Tom Joyner, Founder of The Tom Joyner Foundation.
The partnership with BetMGM is an extension of the foundation’s mission to provide career opportunities for students. Virtual registration will be open to HBCU students nationwide in autumn 2022.
BetMGM CEO Adam Greenblatt commented: “We're proud to partner with The Tom Joyner Foundation in working with HBCU students to help them identify pathways to successful careers. Our goal at BetMGM is to promote equitable candidate experiences and an inclusive working environment.”
