THF's 24th Diversity Awards Dinner
The Annual Diversity Awards Dinner is the Foundationâ€™s premier fundraising and networking event. Supported by the media and entertainment industry, this annual event recognizes and celebrates industry leaders and companies committed to increasing diversity. THF alumni who are establishing and advancing their careers are also recognized.
The industryâ€™s support has enabled the Foundation to fulfill its mission. With the tremendous commitment from our industry sponsors, partners, and friends, the Foundation's 23rd Annual Diversity Awards Dinner raised more than $1.5 million dollars in support of the Foundation's mission of diversity.
