“Education is top of mind today for students at all levels, their parents, educators and administrators,” commented Myers. “Diversity, inclusion and equality also need to rise to the top of the conversations we’re all having about the future of the workplace. Through these conversations, I hope to share insights from experts who are devoting themselves to addressing the new realities we’re all confronting. Education and diversity are two of the four tentpole priorities at the foundation of MediaVillage and the support we receive from our many member companies across the media, advertising, marketing, and entertainment landscape. We’re dedicated to assuring they remain at the forefront of industry attention and priorities.”
