The 2015 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Monday, November 9 at The Pierre. We invite the industry to embrace the IRTS mission of BUILDING FUTURE MEDIA LEADERS by saluting top leaders of today for extraordinary mentorship.
Now in its fourth year, this IRTS fundraiser replaces the annual Gold Medal Gala. IRTS President and CEO Joyce Tudryn explains, "Mentorship has always been the centerpiece of the IRTS educational programs and diversity initiatives, yet we traditionally give accolades based on industry achievements. We now proudly honor extraordinary leaders, who inspire us to make a difference through mentoring. May their examples set some models in motion, and serve as a call for action to all.
