EMBRACING DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION FOR A BETTER FUTURE
D.I.M.E.S. "Connect" is a corporate Diversity & Inclusion “liaison” program that connects diverse media, sport, and entertainment professionals with the leading companies and the most influential role models in our industries through conferences and special networking events.
We aim to create bridges between these groups to foster career growth for professionals from diverse backgrounds and identities.
Through a series of yearly moderated online and offline conference events, we host panels of guest speakers and representatives from the leading companies in our industries to speak and teach about everything from their company’s philosophy to what they look for in new talent.
Most importantly, they share how new talent can connect with them for career opportunities, mitigating structural barriers to access. Each panel session is followed by a Q&A and social networking event for all company panelists and diverse professionals to interact and connect.
After these events, D.I.M.E.S. continues to work year-round as a facilitator for diverse professionals as well as the companies who are part of our program to ensure continuity and support in their cooperation. We also work to connect talent with each another to foster community, co-operation and to create the framework for innovation and support.
