Study: MLS posts more gains in hiring women for 2022 season

A diversity report examining racial and gender hiring in Major League Soccer reported another boost in scores for the hiring of women. That marked a second straight year of significant gains after four years of declines. Thursday’s report card from The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at Central Florida assigned an overall B-plus grade. That included an A for racial hiring and a B for gender hiring. The report examined a range of positions at the league headquarters and within franchises using data from August that covered the 2022 season.
