CAMPAIGN: Making Connections That Matter

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

In late September, members of the cable industry gathered in New York for one of its biggest events, Cable Diversity Week. Time Warner Cable actively participated in Diversity Week, as a sponsor and with our employees serving on panels, acting as mentors, and proudly receiving industry recognition.

TWC was the Presenting Sponsor at the National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC)conference, which began with a jointly presented NAMIC-Cablefax Magazine breakfast celebrating ethnically diverse leaders across the industry, including fifteen from TWC. At the breakfast, TWC Chief Operating Officer Dinni Jain, who was recognized as this year’s Most Influential Minority in Cable by Cablefax and who co-chaired the NAMIC conference, joined Cablefax’s Associate Publisher Mike Grebb for a candid discussion about workplace diversity.

Jain spoke about the rapidly changing world population, and what it takes to meet customer needs in a competitive environment. Summing things up, he said, “Diversity is not a tack-on thing. It is fundamental to the success of our business.”

At the Women in Cable Telecommunications (WICT) Signature Luncheon, TWC leaders were recognized for their commitment to diversity and outstanding leadership. Ellen East, Executive VP and Chief Communications Officer, was named the 2015 Woman of the Year. Rachel Welch, Senior VP of Government Relations, was honored as the 2015 Woman to Watch – Operator.

Additionally, TWC supported and participated in the Walter Kaitz Foundation dinner, helping to raise needed funds for organizations such as WICT, NAMIC, and the Emma Bowen Foundationwhich supports media internship opportunities for minority college students. Chairman and CEO Rob Marcus also joined Michael Powell, President and CEO of the National Cable and Telecommunications Association, and other industry leaders at a special meeting with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), agreeing to continue to support the hiring and retaining of veterans. TWC’s recruitment and diversity teams also joined other companies at the T. Howard Foundation’s HR Diversity Roundtable during the week, to discuss and share ideas regarding diversity recruiting of early talent and interns.

TWC’s participation at Diversity Week highlights our strong commitment to diversity and inclusion within our industry, and our interest in engaging and developing new talent. To learn more about our diversity and inclusion efforts, visit TWC.com.
