2014 Millennials Master Class to be Held at Cable Show

The Walter Kaitz Foundation will present its fifth distinguished Millennials Master Class on Wednesday, April 30, during the NCTA Cable Show at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Featured speakers will include: Andrea Berry, Senior Vice President, Broadcast Media Services, Fox Networks; Mark Depietro, Vice President, Business Development, ARRIS; Art Evans, Director of Enterprise, Workplace Initiatives and Inclusion, Turner Broadcasting Systems; Zenita Henderson, Senior Marketing Manager, ARRIS; Michael Quigley, Vice President, Business Development & Multiplatform Distribution, Turner Broadcasting Systems; and David Rone, President, Time Warner Cable Networks and Time Warner Cable Sports.

Debra Langford, CEO, The Langford Company, will facilitate the day-long with more than 100 high-potential college students, representing multi-ethnic backgrounds from Los Angeles area schools along with the industry’s top executives of color from across the country.  An opening presentation of “Getting Your Point Across Quickly” and two panel sessions that cover Technical/Engineering & Business and Human Resources feature a stellar lineup of leaders from various disciplines who will provide students with a unique inside look at some of the cable industry’s most recent business trends and burgeoning career opportunities.  Students will also be treated to a Networking Lunch and a tour of the Cable Show Exhibit Floor. Participating companies will gain access to a high-caliber and diverse talent pool of Millennials for potential internships and hiring opportunities.

“It’s an easy ask for all involved. I look forward to facilitating the Master Class because it is inspiring to see so many talented and aspirational young people get to meet and interact with highly successful individuals in the industry who not only look like them but who are also here just for them,” said Langford.
