SBJ All IN: Kevin Clayton

Cleveland Cavaliers

Kevin Clayton

Vice President of Diversity, Inclusion and Community Engagement, Cleveland Cavaliers

In his two years with the Cavaliers, Clayton has been the driving force behind the team’s innovative DEI Scorecard. The only U.S. major league sports team to employ this strategy, the DEI Scorecard applies metrics and standards to five key focus areas throughout the team’s business — team member representation, culture — training and education, supplier diversity, marketplace and community engagement. The goal is to ensure historically underrepresented and underserved populations are involved in all aspects of the team’s business. What makes this program unique is that the team’s success in achieving these metrics directly affects executive compensation throughout the organization.
