Who is VSP?
VSP Impact Strategies is a full-service Diversity and Inclusion consulting firm. We support our partners to develop, implement, and measure strategies that cultivate equity and inclusion.
Advocating for equity means disrupting legacies of inequity. Doing so requires us to embrace a mindset of transformation. We support our partners along their journeys in this process.
We are passionate about using the Power of Sports in our efforts to advocate for equity and justice.
Why Believe in the Power of Sports?
"Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire, it has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination."
- Nelson Mandela (2000)
The miracle of sports is the huddle. Once you’re in that huddle, it doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white, Latino or Asian, Native American, Protestant, Catholic, Buddhist, Sikh, Jewish, Hindu, or Muslim. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, gay or straight, if you come from a rich family or a poor family. You’re not going to win the game if you don’t pull together as a team. If we took the huddle concept and brought it to every sector of America, what a different world we’d have today.
