Spectrum has partnered with the Emma Bowen Foundation to build a more diverse media industry. The Emma Bowen Fellows Program provides multi-year internships to students of color at media companies across the country. Each student works as a paid summer intern for each summer following their selection as an Emma Bowen Foundation Fellow through their college graduation, gaining significant on-the-job training in their field and making connections with colleagues and mentors that last a lifetime. Our fellows graduate with invaluable work experience and a head-start in whichever career they choose.
The Emma Bowen Foundation work to educate and place their students in all areas of the industry, and focus on three programming tracks – the Business of Media (Sales, Public Relations, Marketing, Human Resources, etc.), Content of Media (News Production, Broadcast Journalism, and Print Journalism), and Innovation of Media (Engineering, Software Development, Digital Marketing, Coding, etc.).
