Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic priority for the USTA and one of our core values. Diversity allows us to touch "All of America" and Inclusion allows "All of America" to touch us.

Diversity is the collective mixture of our human and organizational assets characterized by our similarities and differences.

Inclusion is leveraging the power of diversity in a respectful environment that encourages all to participate and contribute to further the USTA mission.

Managing diversity and inclusion effectively is critical to achieving the mission of the organization and is an integral part of the success of the USTA’s other three top-level strategic priorities.

Our responsibility as the National Governing Body for the sport obligates us to identify and lead in removing barriers to allow us to be inclusive so that tennis reflects all of America.

Strategic Direction
Our Diversity and Inclusion strategic plan is anchored by six focus areas.

  • Human Assets
  • Image
  • Supplier Diversity
  • USTA Section/Community Engagement
  • Strategic Partnerships
  • Training and Development

Our priorities to successfully implement the plan are to:

  • Increase awareness within the organization of the importance of diversity and inclusion.
  • Provide education and skill-based training to all USTA staff and volunteer leadership.
  • Engage communities through strategic partnerships.
  • Reward, recognize and communicate results.
  • Develop and implement metrics and accountability systems.
  • Reward, recognize and communicate results.
  • "Walk the Talk" by demonstrating behaviors that are aligned with our values.
  • Access communities through traditional and non-traditional tennis organizations, media outlets and others.
  • Leverage our diversity and inclusion strategy with current and future partners to drive revenue.
  • Share USTA successes and best practices with the greater tennis community.

We will arrive at our destination when the USTA is recognized worldwide as the preeminent organization in which people from all walks of life, representing all dimensions of diversity, will want to work and volunteer; and to which they will want to provide support through participation, membership collaboration and sponsorship.
