One Global Culture is being created as an interpersonal and dynamic event networking organization designed to advance the hiring of Black coaches and executives in professional sports.  The fact is that 80% of jobs, promotions, and raises are filled and are awarded because of personal networking connections.  At OG Culture, in conjunction with the leagues and participating teams, we will develop proactive networking events to provide the personal connections necessary to build a proactive access and hiring environment for Black coaches and executives.  We will also offer essential networking resources and support enabling Black candidates and Black-owned businesses to successfully navigate the business landscape in professional sports.

OG Culture Networking Events 

OG Culture will work to bring club owners and top decision-makers together with Black coaches, aspiring Black executives, potential Black shareholders, and, at times, Black-owned businesses in premier attendance-worthy networking events.  OG Culture believes that these social settings will allow everyone to meet each other personally and build not only an essential network but more importantly the trust needed to create lasting relationships.  

 

At OG Culture, we believe the most effective solution to the advancement of Black executive leadership in professional sports is to provide an infrastructure to develop cultural comfort by building meaningful social relationships.  With cooperation from the head office, OG Culture will use a variety of tent pole events to organize these gatherings.

Our OG Culture Solution Stack of offerings includes:
  1. OG Culture Networking

  2. BP Executive Staffing

  3. UnBiasIt Racial Bias Alert

  4. WSA Retirement Program

The Black Progress Matters Mission
BPM_IconWHITE2.png

One Global Culture [“OG Culture”] is a new startup that is being developed and launched by Roger Harriott and James Walker in conjunction with the Black Progress Matters Black-Owned Business Incubation Program.  OG Culture embraces the Black Progress Matters mission and is specifically dedicated to the hiring and advancement of Black Head Coaches and Executives in professional sports.


Black Progress Matters [BPM] recognizes that the color of the executive suite speaks volumes about the character of an organization as well as the true opportunity available for people of color in that organization.  BPM believes that if you look to the top of an organization and see Black leadership - it will inspire everyone of color in that organization.  BPM’s main objective, therefore, is to change the color of leadership in organizations worldwide through BPM’s various executive minority staffing activities.  BPM is in no way adversarial, confrontational, or judgemental; nor are we a D&I consulting service.  


While our Black Progress Executive Staffing Program is the first pillar of our BPM mission, BPM also provides an ambitious incubator program for the development and funding of Black-owned start-ups.  Developing successful Black ownership is an essential component of BPM’s core mission to change the color of the executive suite and ownership of organizations worldwide.  The BPM Founding Partners have pledged BPM’s entire profits to this ambitious incubator program.
