Now in its 36th year, the IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop has earned the reputation of being one of the best ways for BIPOC students and recent grads to get a jump start in their careers, all while interfacing with top media companies for insights and open opportunities.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, they are bringing this experience to you! Students will leave this conference with a greater understanding of the media business, career paths you might not know exist, tangible next-steps, and an even stronger sense of why the industry needs your talent and perspective more than ever. No cost to attend the workshop!
Join them virtually for the 2020 IRTS Multicultural Career Workshop on November 12, 13, & 14!
From 11am – 3pm ET each day, you will hear from some of the industry’s most dynamic professionals through a series of engaging panels, featured speakers, and Q&A sessions. Then, each weeknight from 6pm – 7pm ET, they will have a conversation with accomplished members of the IRTS community. The majority of the speakers were actually former attendees of IRTS programs.
Since media is ever-evolving and multifaceted, the panel and speaker topics are designed to introduce attendees to the various positions and opportunities within the industry. Conferees will learn about opportunities in advertising, content creation, digital media, journalism, marketing, media buying and planning, production, research, sales, and many more!
Following the Workshop, students will have the opportunity to participate in exclusive meetings with top media companies to learn about their work, mission, and entry level opportunities. Resumes will also be shared with their corporate partners, to be vetted for current and future internships and full-time positions.
Accomplished students (freshman – grad school) and recent university graduates (less than 12 months out of school) from all majors are encouraged to apply! Click here to apply!

An Admissions Officer from the Yale School of Management and a panel of Yale SOM Silver Scholars and alumni will present an information session to share information about this very unique opportunity.
The Silver Scholars Program is specifically designed for college seniors who wish to earn an MBA immediately after completing their undergraduate studies. Students enroll in Yale SOM’s full-time two-year MBA program but rather than the traditional summer MBA internship, Silver Scholars complete a year-long internship of their choice.
The admissions committee seeks applicants with a combination of intelligence, maturity, and curiosity who aim to be future leaders in their field of interest. Candidates from all majors are welcome to apply; Yale SOM enjoys the diversity of interests and backgrounds that Silver Scholars bring to the broader MBA class.
Date: Friday, October 23
Time: 12 noon – 1 pm EST

This in, from our amazing Middlebury alum, activist, journalist and now best-selling author, Sierra Crane Murdoch ’09:
“Hello, friends in Vermont and friends with ties to Vermont!
I thought I’d let a few of you know that next Wednesday, October 14, I’ll be discussing my book Yellow Bird and the This American Life episode that emerged from it with Angela Evancie, my dear friend and the host of VPR’s Brave Little State. The wonderful people at Literary North teamed up with Still North Books to organize the event. You can tune in via Crowdcast at 7:30 p.m. ET. (Register here.) It’ll be live, and you can ask questions! We hope you’ll join and spread the word.”
Also, a review in the New York Times for her debut book. And here’s a teaser: The gripping true story of a murder on an Indian reservation, and the unforgettable Arikara woman who becomes obsessed with solving it—an urgent work of literary journalism.
