The 2014 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Tuesday, October 21st 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 third year, this IRTS fundraiser replaced 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 gave accolades based solely on industry achievement. We now proudly honor extraordinary leaders, who also 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.
ABOUT IRTS: The IRTS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, which brings together the wisdom and power of today's leaders to train and educate the next generation of media and communication professionals. Proceeds from this event will benefit the IRTS educational programs, including the 9-week expense-paid Summer Fellowships, Multicultural Career Workshops, and Faculty Seminars. Your contribution, less $225 per seat is deductible as a charitable contribution to the extent allowed by law. IRTS programs try to ensure that our business reaches its highest potential in this exciting digital age. IRTS stands for International Radio and Television Society, but these days we simply use our acronym because we embrace legacy, digital, and emerging media in all that we do.
