Diversity in Media is our Mission

On Wednesday, March 26, T. Howard Foundation (THF) board and staff welcomed more than 635 media industry representatives for the Foundation’s 21st annual Diversity Awards Dinner, held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.

THF recognized media corporations and executives for outstanding leadership in the area of diversity, and saluted the Foundation’s internship class of 2013 and acknowledged the students’ host company partners.

“The T. Howard Foundation is thankful for the support and partnership with so many media companies that enables the organization to provide the priceless gift of opportunity to young people of color,” said Jo Pamphile, THF President & CEO. “I’m proud that in 2013, 103 THF talent pool students gained professional work experiences with our media host company partners. In addition, last year 32 T. Howard alumni were hired for full-time positions in the industry.”
