Fanatics has developed strategies for all stages of the employee lifecycle, including hiring, onboarding, engaging, developing, and advancing. Our goal is to foster an environment where everyone experiences a sense of belonging and connection, and feels seen, heard, and valued.

In this spirit, we have developed strategies to move us forward on this journey to build a culture of inclusion within our workforce and communities.


Inclusion, Diversity, Equality, Advocacy (IDEA)

We partner across our business to deliver transparent, fair and inclusive processes, free from discrimination of any form. Our aim is to build an inclusive Fanatics community, reflecting and representing society and the communities where we work, providing opportunities for all to succeed and grow.

IDEA isn’t just about race or gender, it’s about what you can and can’t see: race, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, age, religion, sexual orientation, family status, educational background, culture, experiences, veteran status, physical abilities, physical appearance, neurodiversity, and more.

Our progress will be an evolution, and will take time, but we will learn and adapt each and every day.

Our Global Inclusion team is dedicated to setting cross-functional strategies, measuring goals, and being held accountable for our Company’s commitment to IDEA.

In our own voices

What does IDEA mean to us? We asked that very same question to our employees across the globe. These words and phrases are how we define Inclusion, Diversity, Equality, and Advocacy.
