This article reports that the Walter Kaitz Foundation last Wednesday night drew about 1,400 people to its annual benefit dinner, translating to about $1.4 million to fund organizations working to help women and people of color find jobs and advance to top management positions in the cable industry. Spencer Kaitz son of the businessman Walter Kaitz, the late California cable lobbyist, in whose memory the foundation was created in 1981, was the dinner's honoree. In his remarks, he said about 500 individuals careers had benefited from the foundation's efforts over the years and said if cable management better reflected the diverse population of potential customers, cable would be in better competitive shape against satellite-TV and telephone providers.
