FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Kraft Sports + Entertainment (KSE) announced today the launch of the Robert K. Kraft Fellowship Program. The goal of this program is to provide opportunity and access to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) candidates connected to the New England community who are eager to gain professional experience in the sports and entertainment industry.
Beginning in January 2022, qualified individuals will be chosen to join the KSE team for a year-long program to learn how the sports and events business operates through real-life work assignments. An assigned mentor will support the Fellows' navigation and fulfillment throughout this program. Throughout the fellowship, there will be opportunities to present to ownership and executive leadership as well as meet with department leaders who support our sports and events management business.
Fellows will rotate through four functional areas of the organization:
1. Event Operations: Work closely with the event operations team on work assignments during both event and non-event days.
2. Corporate Partnerships: Learn how to deliver exceptional customer service while working closely with account executives during both event and non-event days.
