When it comes to turning points, this week has several in store for A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications. In addition to overseeing the association’s annual conference in New York City, which kicks off tomorrow (September 17), this year’s event marks the end of Washington’s first year running NAMIC. “One of the things that made this opportunity for me so important was joining an industry (cable) that has an infrastructure committed to diversity and inclusion,” Washington (pictured above) explained last week during an interview with MediaVillage. “Over the course of the last year it’s been, for me, about validating a continued commitment in that regard, looking at where are we now and where we are going. Our goal is to ensure that people of color, and of all ethnic backgrounds, are involved in every aspect of our industry, and how we do business.”
