An impressive board of advisors will help NAMIC hone its diversity efforts in ’07, NAMIC Pres Kathy Johnson told attendees of NAMIC’s annual Holiday Benefit Gala Thurs night at the Marriott Marquis in NYC. The board includes big names like ESPN pres George Bodenheimer, Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt, Comcast EVP David Cohen, Cox CEO Pat Esser, Oxygen chmn/CEO Gerry Laybourne, A&E pres/CEO Abbe Raven, NatGeo pres Laureen Ong and Rainbow Media pres/CEO Josh Sapan. Meanwhile, Scripps Networks pres John Lansing, who NAMIC honored for Scripps’ diversity efforts, called diversity "a business imperative." He said Scripps has "much more work to do" in improving upper-level management diversity but that "this affirmation that we’re headed in the right direction inspires us to work harder." Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA), who was also honored, said the debate over net neutrality, franchising and other issues must include diverse voices. "The sooner you are there at the table, the sooner we will have results for all of society," he said.
