Let’s Shape the Future Together

The 2014 Kaitz Dinner is in the books. And so is a tremendous injection of support for organizations that support diversity in and around the cable industry.

Revolving around the theme, "The Shape of Things to Come," The 2014 Dinner generated approximately $1.4 million from sponsors, attendees and supporters. The majority of those proceeds will support initiatives and programs from The Walter Kaitz Foundation and our partner organizations – The Emma L. Bowen Foundation, the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications, and Women in Cable Telecommunications. All are dedicated, persistent and effective advocates for professional and personal development involving women and professionals of color. On their behalf and ours we offer our utmost gratitude to those who attended and supported The Kaitz Dinner.

The Dinner was graciously hosted by Fusion’s Alicia Menendez, anchor of “Alicia Menendez Tonight,” while NuvoTV’s Erik Rivera, entertained the audience with his unique comedy.

The 2014 Kaitz Dinner recognized two exemplary honorees were recognized:

  • The 2014 Diversity Advocate, FCC Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn;
  • The 2014 Diversity Champion, BET Networks.

To all who attended, dined, mingled and enjoyed rollicking live performances from the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE All Stars, introduced by host Cat Deeley and sponsored by Fox Networks, we thank you, and we are humbled by your continued support.

We invite you to join us again next year as The 2015 Kaitz Dinner takes place on Wednesday, September 30 in New York City. In the meantime, we hope you’ll continue to engage with us through our social media channels – or better still, in person. We can’t say it enough: Thank you!
