COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter have focused increased scrutiny on just how intentionally media companies and their leadership are focused on advancing diversity goals. The recent Media Education Summit hosted by MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org was a unique gathering that connected educators with industry diversity and inclusion activists to build the bridges required between media professionals and academia. The Media Education Summit (view on-demand here) was a heavyweight collection of thinkers, including Dean Gracie Lawson-Borders, Howard University Cathy Hughes School of Communications, Dean Mark Lodato, S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University; Andrea Press, Media Studies Department Head, University of Virginia; and Kai Wright, founder & curator of blacklist100 and Columbia University lecturer. The 90-minute conversation led by MediaVillage and AdvancingDiversity.org founder Jack Myers, was appointment viewing for industry insiders and academics committed to diversity goals and connections built on best practices.
