Diversity Partner Spotlight: FOX

The T. Howard Foundation thanks FOX Corporation, a 2020 Diamond Plus Diversity Partner and Board Company, for its continued support.

This past year, FOX presented a special session during the Foundation’s (THF) 2020 Summer Series. The session provided THF’s talent pool (interns, alumni and members) with an overview of FOX Corporation as a potential employer. The session also offered participants, suggestions on how to build successful careers in media, entertainment and production through the lens of five FOX employees, each speaking to their unique professional experiences and representing a different FOX brand (FOX Corporation, FOX Entertainment, FOX News, FOX Sports).

FOX also participated in the Foundation’s 2020 Meet & Greet Networking Event as it’s only Premium Plus sponsor, the highest level of sponsorship.

Hosted annually, the Meet & Greet is a networking opportunity held to connect THF alumni and select talent pool members with hiring representatives from the media, entertainment, advertising, and tech industries. This event presents talent pool members with a great opportunity to meet HR and Talent acquisition professionals from industry leading companies, to share their interest, learn about career opportunities, and connect with peers to build their professional network.

FOX was one of 31 companies that participated in this year’s virtual event. Eleven recruiters signed-on to conduct one-on-one video interviews and educate talent pool members about its available internship and professional opportunities. Information about the company was also shared via its Sponsor page and a scrolling banner (as seen in the photo) on the event app and through its Welcome Room, a virtual meeting space that facilitated impromptu, group networking with members of its team.

A total of 107 talent pool members participated in this year’s event.
