Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This open session discusses the successes and challenges of diversifying American media operations. While it appears to some that every station has reached diversity at some level, not many of found the magical mixture of race, creed and cultural inclusion. Not all have gender parity in positions of leadership. Not every sales force mirrors the communities served. Some media entities, however have found a way to model diversity at every level. Presenters will discuss what works and does not work in his or her efforts to diversify and where there is room to grow.
