ESPN is tackling the issue of diversity by teaming with Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University to launch a mentoring program for the sports network.

The program will pair seven junior and senior students of color from Quinnipiac’s Asian, Latino, African and Native American program with ESPN managers in affiliate sales and marketing.

Disney and ESPN Media Networks executive vice president, affiliate sales and marketing, David Preschlack said students will experience “a day-in-the-life” of the inner workings of ESPN.
