Michael Powell: Keep diversity pipeline filled
Multichannel News
The cable industry has to maintain a steady pipeline of qualified people of color to ensure increased diversity within the employment ranks of cable companies, according to NCTA CEO Michael Powell. Speaking at the opening panel at the NAMIC Conference, Powell said overall, the industry is outperforming most other industries when it comes to its diversity efforts. He added to remain vigilant, the industry needs to keep an eye on its diversity employment numbers and be prepared to react to any dips that may occur within those numbers, particularly among middle and upper management positions.
