This article focuses on the cable industry. The cable industry will put its best foot forward regarding diversity efforts but a new industry-based survey indicates cable still lags other industries in hiring and promoting people of color. Multichannel News obtained early results from the survey, which only included responses from 10 unidentified companies in the cable sector. The report queried human-resource executives at various operators and programmers about their diversity practices, and asked National Association for Multi-Ethnicity in Communications members about how seriously they think the industry treats the goal of diversifying the executive ranks.
