ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos will host the third annual DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) Career Huddle for college students and young professionals on Wednesday, March 29 from 9 a.m.–12 p.m. MT.
The event will be held in the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at UCHealth Training Center.

A new addition to the DEI Career Huddle this will be Broncos Academy—an additional two-and-a-half-hour opportunity for in-person participants from 2–4:30 p.m. to split up into small working groups led by a Broncos executive. Participants will be able to choose from corporate partnerships, business intelligence and analytics and ticket sales, to receive hands-on training and tips to be successful in those fields.
This year's career huddle is designed to educate college students and young professionals who aspire to pursue a career in football operations while highlighting the roles, structure and various opportunities within an NFL front office. Pro Football Hall of Fame safety, and Broncos Fan Development Manager, Steve Atwater will serve as the keynote speaker while the career huddle offers three discussion panels featuring 12 members of the Broncos' organization.
