UPCOMING EVENT

IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER

The 2019 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Wednesday, September 25. 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 eighth 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.
