MSG Entertainment is a true partner in the local communities where our U.S. venues are located – and we are committed to doing the same in Newham.
We’ve already started working with the local community on initiatives that help support future talent that could play or work in our venues, and that recognise leaders in the community.
And we want to keep investing in the future of Newham via a community benefits programme, including investments that will support local community groups, education and the arts, as well as provide the opportunity for our neighbours to stage events at MSG Sphere.
Loughborough University London’s Inspiring Success Programme
With our plans for MSG Sphere we are making local training initiatives and hiring a priority and will work closely with our neighbours to deliver on that commitment. That’s why we’re pleased to support Loughborough University London’s Inspiring Success programme, which provides an important boost for graduates in East London to gain valuable job skills and begin exciting careers. Introduced in 2015, Inspiring Success helps local unemployed and underemployed graduates from Hackney, Newham, Waltham Forest and Tower Hamlets progress into graduate-level employment, and over 100 local people have benefited.
As part of our support for the programme, we’re delighted to sponsor a 100% tuition fee-paid scholarship for Asmita Kumar, a local graduate from Forest Gate. Asmita has already made important contributions to her community and we look forward to seeing her thrive in this programme and beyond!
