BCOMS aims to be the first port of call both for black professionals in the sports media and talented newcomers looking to develop their careers.
An independent group, BCOMS is committed to changing the status quo through:
- Innovative networking, sharing contacts and opportunities, training programmes.
- Developing relationships with media organisations, educational establishments, existing trade union bodies and key decision-makers
- Promoting the message that a more diverse workforce is proven to yield better results
- Creating pathways for young people seeking a career in sports media
The group has established great relationships across the sports media and is keen to develop further partnerships across the industry.
While BCOMS has a specific remit in representing the black community, our members feel strongly about all strands of diversity, including gender, disability, sexual orientation and religion.
