The Kaitz Dinner

New York Marriott Marquis


The Kaitz Dinner returns to New York City this fall!  Join us as the media & entertainment industry comes together to acknowledge its ongoing advocacy, action, and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Walter Kaitz Foundation’s Annual Fundraising Dinner serves as the capstone of a series of programs and events held during Diversity Week a curated gathering of the media and entertainment industry with an intentional focus on creating career-enhancing access and opportunities for women and diverse professionals. The event garners the broad support of broadband, content, and technology companies, with the primary purpose of fundraising while uniting around the cause of building a more inclusive and equitable industry. 

The theme of this year’s Dinner, forward + together, speaks to a renewed movement around inclusion and equity which has become even more nuanced amidst a recent global focus on social justice and requisite corporate and societal change. This is a markedly different focus from over four decades ago when the Foundation first launched. 

Today, there is a recognition that what initially began as an effort to support career advancement for women and people of color continues to be important work for any group of people who are marginalized. Our work goes beyond observing differences; it means that we must understand those differences and provide access to opportunities where people are seen, heard, and accepted.

Your support and sponsorship, now available at a variety of giving levels, are needed to continue our mission-driven work. View our full brochure of opportunities and contact to secure your sponsorship. Additional program details and individual table and ticket sales will be announced soon.
