Florida State University’s Foundation for Diversity & Inclusion in Sport will feature Megha Parekh, senior vice president and chief legal officer for the Jacksonville Jaguars, in its upcoming Sports Talk Series.
Parekh will discuss her role as a woman in a male-dominated sports industry and her responsibilities as a young professional in a high-level executive position.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 4 in University Center D, Room 1101, 403 Stadium Drive.
Parekh is an alumna of Harvard University as well as Harvard Law School and now heads the legal, employee relations, technology and capital departments for the Jacksonville Jaguars and its sister companies. She has also been featured on Forbes magazine’s 30 Under 30 list for sports.
Parking is available around the stadium. Attendees are encouraged to enter the University Center near the Bobby Bowden statue.
The Foundation for Diversity & Inclusion in Sport was founded earlier this year by sport management master’s student Benjamin Pereira. The organization seeks to empower students of diverse backgrounds through personal and professional development using a series of acclaimed speakers from the world of athletics.
The Foundation for Diversity & Inclusion in Sport’s proposal for the Sport Talk Series was one of the inaugural group of winners of the 2017-2018 Diversity and Inclusion Mini-Grant Awards selected by FSU’s President’s Council on Diversity and Inclusion.
