Nominate for The Diversity List 2022

Every year, Cablefax recognizes the top multi-ethnic executives based on their influence and power within the industry—as well as their commitment to ensuring that other execs of color receive the same opportunities to grow and flourish. The Diversity List honors proven inclusive leaders contributing to a more equitable industry for all. Help us celebrate the people who are shaping the industry and opening doors for diversity & inclusion across all areas of the media business. Until Friday, June 3, each organization can submit three entries for free. After June 3rd, separate rates apply (see below).  

This year, Cablefax: The Magazine introduces its inaugural Pride List, honoring top LGBTQ+ execs who are making their mark on the industry. 

Cablefax is also seeking nominations for a number of individual and organization awards, including D&I Mentor of the Year and Public Affairs Campaign. Additionally, this magazine features our Thrivers Under 30, the industry’s rising stars under 30. 

New this Year: The Pride List

Celebrating the Industry's Top LGBTQ+ Executives

While the Diversity List focuses on multi-ethnic executives, we also want to shine a spotlight on LGBTQ+ who are leaders within their organization and the industry. We will recognize a cadre of executives who identify as LGBTQ+ individuals and embody excellence in leadership, community service, and overall business acumen.
(This category is open to any LGBTQ+ individuals, regardless of race).
