IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER

November 8th ♦ Dinner ♦ New York Hilton

The 2017 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Wednesday, November 8 at The New York Hilton. 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 sixth year, 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.

Upcoming Programs

2018 IRTS Faculty Industry Seminar

In an effort to bridge the gap that can sometimes exist between classroom and industry, IRTS provides an annual opportunity for university educators  to meet with senior media and entertainment executives. It’s an ideal opportunity to discuss the changing nature of our business. The generosity of companies and individuals has made it possible for us to underwrite this unique educational experience for more than four decades.

Thanks to our partnership with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the 2018 IRTS Faculty Seminar is MEDIA INSIDERS: Today’s Opportunities & Tomorrow’s Challenges. Attendees will also have the added advantage of attending CES 2018.

2018 Summer Fellowship Program

The Summer Fellowship Program, the most notable student out-reach effort of IRTS, teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice. Each year college juniors, seniors and graduate students are selected nationwide to participate in the nine-week Summer Fellowship Program. Check back in the fall for our 2018 application!
