2017 Hall of Mentorship

IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER

The 2020 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Thursday, September 24. 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 ninth 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.”

Congratulations to last year’s extraordinary 2019 Hall of Mentorship honorees: Louis Carr, Rita Ferro, Jennifer Gardner, Craig Robinson and Deborah Wahl, as well as to Steven R. Swartz, our inaugural Founders Award recipient. The Founders Award salutes remarkable leadership that also embraces mentorship within the highest tier of a company.
