Nominate for The Diversity List 2023

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. Help us celebrate the people who are shaping the industry and opening doors for diversity & inclusion across all areas of the media business.

For the second year, Cablefax’s Diversity issue will also feature The 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.

Until Friday, May 12, each organization can submit one entry for free. After May 12, separate rates apply (see below).  

The Pride List

Celebrating the Industry's Top LGBTQ+ Executives

While the Diversity List focuses on multi-ethnic executives, we also want to continue 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).
