Katie Blackburn and Bengals Honored by Fritz Pollard Alliance


The Fritz Pollard alliance was created to  promote diversity and equality of job opportunity in the coaching, front office and scouting staffs of National Football League.

Cincinnati Bengals Executive Vice President Katie Blackburn is being honored for the franchise embracing those values:


The Firtz Pollard Alliance promotes candidate talent development for coaching, front office executives and scouting staff throughout the National Football League (“NFL”) through strategic efforts including:

*     Networking

*     Educating NFL team owners and managers regarding the availability of minority candidates for team staff positions
