While our physical office in Silver Spring, MD has been closed due to COVID -19, the Team at T. Howard is still working from our homes to adapt our current program offerings. In place of our Summer Internships, we have developed the Summer Series; a virtual professional development program consisting of webinars, panel discussions and case competitions
that will run from June 1 – August 1.
The Board of Directors and the Team at T. Howard in collaboration with our Diversity, Academic and Strategic Partners remain as committed as ever to our mission of diversity and inclusion.
On May 25th, while struggling with the challenges of the intense threat of COVID-19, we witnessed a horrific event; the deliberate killing of an African American man by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This was the third high profile killing of an African American in recent months.
In response to these unjust killings, countless people around the world, engaged in peaceful protest.
Across the country, Americans of all ethnicities came together to demonstrate their acknowledgement of a crime and the injustice that took place. As an organization dedicated to diversity and inclusion, this was an encouraging sight to see.
This is why we work as hard as we do to promote diversity; because it can make a positive difference.
We must stand together for civil rights, human rights and justice.
– Jo Pamphile, President and CEO
Our goal is to increase the participation of diverse and underrepresented college students and young professionals in the media and entertainment industry.
“The best part of the THF experience was orientation and the mentor program. Orientation gave me the tools to be successful in my internship, from body language, networking, and proper business etiquette. The mentor program was a positive experience. My mentor has helped me learn about this industry, expand and explore my horizons, encourage professional development, and live outside my comfort zone.”
“The most memorable experience is the people I met. The long-lasting relationships with my fellow peers will be invaluable. The connection that THF staff provides will help me pursue the career I have been dreaming of.”
“Being a T. Howard intern is an experience of a lifetime, one which you’ll never forget. You learn about others while learning more about yourself and what you need to do to succeed in your future career. T. Howard Foundation prepares you and most of all they care for you. Make the most of it. Talk to everyone and support everyone.”
“Orientation gave me the incredible opportunity to meet so many gifted individuals. I wish it could have been longer, but I was able to learn so much about my peers, the industry, and how I can make an impact going forward.”
“The opportunities are endless and the connections you make aren’t like any other internship I’ve had. Everyone I have met during my internship (my manager, other employees, fellow interns and mentor) have supported me and given me insight into the industry. I have learned so much and been exposed to different components of the industry.”
