Rooney Rule Revisited: Race and Diversity in Sports and Corporate America
On September 21, Temple University hosted a panel entitled “Rooney Rule Revisited: Race and Diversity in Sports and Corporate America,” an event to discuss the Rooney Rule in the NFL and DEI in business more generally. The “Rooney Rule” is the NFL policy requiring teams to interview minority candidates for head coaching and senior football operations roles. The panelists were N. Jeremi Duru, a sports law expert at American University’s Washington College of Law and former Beasley School of Law professor, and Jim Rooney, an owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and son of the Rooney Rule’s originator Dan Rooney. Professor Ken Jacobsen arranged to co-sponsor the program on behalf of the Beasley School of Law.
