Aliso Viejo, CA – The Golden State Athletic Conference is excited to announce a partnership with Walmart Laguna Niguel and the Walmart Foundation to support diversity in the local community. The Walmart Foundation has given a grant to the GSAC in support of efforts the conference is making in education and leadership development in its Diversity Internship.
The GSAC launched its first ever Diversity Internship in September. The position was created for ethnic minorities and females to help enhance representation in intercollegiate athletic administrative positions. Though conversations and education of social injustice is important, actions will have a greater impact towards the goal of inclusion for all. The Walmart Community Grants Team is thrilled to support the conference’s work within its community and shares the same desire to make a local impact.
“I am pleased we have a local store that wanted to partner with this initiative,” said Commissioner Mike Daniels. ” The Walmart Foundation shares the same goals that the GSAC does, making a societal impact. By supporting the GSAC Diversity Internship, a leadership position is created within the conference office with the goal to bring system-wide change.”
