To kick off Women’s History Month, the Dallas Mavericks announced a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Gift of Character partnership with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GSNETX) that will power the regional organization’s DEI efforts in four key structural transformations – people, programs, processes and properties. The Mavs are investing $50,000 annually over a 3-year period, for a total of $150,000. Through the continuous support of the partnership, the region’s Girl Scouts will be given the tools to build the courage to stand-up, the confidence to speak-up and the character to take action against inequities in the world.
Last month, the Mavericks and GSNETX kicked off the partnership with the region’s first-ever Black History Month Patch powered by the Dallas Mavericks, which will continue all three years.

Photos of Dallas area Girl Scouts earning their Black History Month Patches are available for editorial use here. In February, the Mavs also became the first year presenting sponsor of the GSNETX World Thinking Day Panel, where community peacemakers joined the Girl Scouts in a conversation about how girls can build peace from a personal, community and global perspective.
The Dallas Mavericks announced a new partnership and $500,000 investment in Paul Quinn College, the only Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in the DFW area and a model for urban higher education nationally, to develop the Mavs Major academic program.

Plan, the Mavs and Paul Quinn look to create a new kind of leadership program to support a pipeline of talent for tomorrow’s leaders and career readiness for HBCU students.
