12:15 PM - 1:30 PM All You Need to Know to Land That First Sports Media Internship: Tips and Tricks!
Speaker: A. Sherrod Blakely

We will discuss what employers are looking for in interns, stories from interns who were successful and most important, what interns should take away from that first internship experience.

A. Sherrod Blakely is a veteran sports journalist who has covered a range of sports, from field hockey to the Final Four. Since 2009, he has been a digital media reporter covering the Boston Celtics for Comcast SportsNet,, and SportsNet Central. Prior to that, the Syracuse, New York native was an NBA beat writer in Detroit where he covered the Pistons for Booth News Service and His professional career hasn't always been in the pros. Prior to working in Michigan, Blakely spent five years covering Duke, North Carolina State, and the ACC for the Raleigh, North Carolina News & Observer. He credits those opportunities having come about because of the encouragement he received from his tenth grade English teacher - Mr. Paratore - and the education he received at Syracuse University's S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.
12:15 PM - 1:30 PM Intro to Diversity & Social Justice Training

Trainings offered by the Office of Diversity Services focus on understanding the identities and experiences of marginalized students. We focus on students of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and the development of ally practices. These trainings are available to faculty, staff, and students and can be customized to suit the needs of a department, organization, division, or group. Each semester, our office offers several "open" trainings to the entire campus community. Please register to ensure your seat in the training.

This training asks participants to expand their notions of the categories that we typically think of as "diverse" and to begin to examine their deeply held ideas and beliefs about people who may be different from themselves. We will provide an introduction to social justice, power, privilege, oppression, access, and intersectionality and discuss how these play out in current events. Participants will also learn about the intersections of race, class, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, and many other social identities, as well as how to act in allyship around identities to which they do not belong.
