we value

We believe in the power of a diverse community and the value in appreciating the lived experiences of everyone at all levels of the company no matter their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, socioeconomic status or ability. We believe that actionable, long-lasting change is driven by intentional practices which is why our focus is on building a diverse Workforce, cultivating an inclusive Workplace, and enhancing our marketplace so that it delivers culturally relevant products and services.

As our nation learns how to face some its ills—racial injustice, gender bias, global oppression, heterosexism, religious intolerance, and ableism, OVG continues to grow and become reflective of our ever-evolving landscape. In times like these recognizing diversity, fostering inclusion, and working towards common core values have become more urgent than ever.

We know the importance of moving from ideals to action, and we are committed to building diverse talent pipelines, increasing development opportunities for underrepresented minorities, holding space for brave conversations, and investing in the communities that we serve.

We know that to continue positively disrupting the sports and live entertainment industry, we need to hold ourselves accountable and reimagine our workforce, workplace, and marketplace so that it better reflects the communities we serve. While we are physically apart, we are not alone. Together, we achieve.

Our proactive actions today will pay off tomorrow. Climate change is already impacting communities where we’re present and our industry more broadly. Thankfully, we are equipped – and are already implementing – the solutions to lead climate action and overcome this emerging crisis. Solutions may look different along our journey and across our portfolio, but we are committed to implementing just and meaningful solutions in every community in which we operate.

Climate Pledge Arena

Our venues represent a safe space for communities to gather and enjoy sports and live entertainment. We work with the leaders in safety, security, and technology to minimize and neutralize any potential threat to our guests’ experience. 

Our goal is to develop a prevention culture and “first preventers” so that fans, and talent, and management all contribute to safety and security for all to enjoy.
