The Boston Red Sox is one of the most iconic sports franchises in history. Established, in 1901 as one of eight clubs to enter into the newly founded American League, the team was originally known as the Boston Americans. The team played its home games at the Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds in Boston before adopting the name Red Sox prior to the 1908 season and moving to Fenway Park in 1912.
Over the last two decades, we began an authentic journey to create a workplace and venue that reflects the vibrancy of Red Sox Nation and New England. Beginning in the summer of 2020, our employees have taken a leadership role in collectively developing a sustainable outline for how the company can continue to grow in its efforts to create a culture of inclusion and belonging. Through the creation of an employee-led Social Justice, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Committee and hundreds of employee volunteers , we have worked to develop sustainable initiatives for our staff that promote diversity, equity and inclusion. We have also pledged to use our platform to promote racial and social justice causes that align with our core values, and to continually address cultural and structural barriers that hinder equity.
