The Diversity-TECH staff conduct extensive outreach to stakeholders and diverse STEM students for internships that will add diversity to the many companies that exist at the intersection of entertainment and technology. A planned rotational program will expand the program to provide “path to hire” opportunities.

“As the charter sponsor of the initiative, Fox is proud to support the recruitment of diverse STEM students with a focus on technology,” said Mike Biard, President, Operations and Distribution, Fox Corporation and Vice Chair, THF Board of Directors.

A Diversity-TECH Advisory Committee assists in the overall governance of the program and how it operates and delivers the services to participating companies.

“Students of color are truly underrepresented in the technology arena,” said Jo Pamphile, the Foundation’s President & CEO. “This program will significantly impact this disparity by providing career opportunities for African-American, Latinx, Asian and Native American students.”
