SBJ ALL IN: Kevin Warren

Travis Ellison

Kevin Warren

Commissioner, Big Ten Conference

Warren has championed diversity efforts everywhere he’s been, from the NFL to across college sports. In just more than two years, he has transformed the conference’s front office, doubling the percentage of people of color during that time from 13.3% to 27.8%. Under his leadership, the conference in 2021 introduced the first basketball media day that featured men’s and women’s teams and players equally. The Big Ten Network also made a major commitment to women’s athletics by devoting 56% of its linear and digital airtime to women’s programming. One of Warren’s most comprehensive DEI efforts has been the Big Ten Equality Coalition, a groundbreaking, nonpartisan group representing all 14 member institutions committed to combat racism and encourage student athlete voices to be heard.
