Zach Best shares a thorough account of FanSided’s experience at USA Games and speaks in detail about the Inclusion Revolution and how many more need to embrace the movement.

The following is an excerpt from the article titled What Businesses Can Learn From the Inclusion Revolution in Sports, published by Hashtag Sports.

Just recently, the sports and entertainment network that I co-founded, FanSided, and our parent company, Minute Media, partnered with Special Olympics to shine a spotlight on why inclusivity in sports matters so much. While our goal has always been to create communities that celebrate uniqueness, this partnership is providing us with a real opportunity to be a champion for inclusion by sharing inspiring experiences of people with intellectual disabilities discovering new strengths through sport. We highlight these stories of inclusivity in sports in a dedicated section we built for these stories on FanSided, called Why We Play.

Recently, our entire team gathered at the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games in Orlando to volunteer and witness first-hand the incredible and unique stories of athletes with intellectual disabilities. Being able to experience the joy, passion and persistence of this incredible group of athletes served as an important reminder of the true power of inclusion, what Special Olympics aptly calls the “Inclusion Revolution.” Importantly, it also taught us how to be more inclusive as a company.
