October 2007
Multichannel News;10/1/2007, Vol. 28 Issue 39, p43
The author focuses on the events of the cable industry's Diversity Week conference. He reflects that the terms "disabled" or "GLBT" were rarely mentioned as qualifications for the definition of diversity and that only George Bodenheimer of ESPN/ABC Sports spoke of race, gender, orientation and disability. He suggests for the industry to act on Julian Bond's message to work with GLBT groups and to stop hate crimes against them.
