Recently, CBS Corporation’s EVP, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Josie Thomas received the Media Executive of the Year Award at the Women of Excellence Salute event presented by African American Women in Cinema. Thomas was also presented with a Proclamation from the City of New York for her work as a “champion of minority rights throughout her career and for helping make one of the nation’s largest media companies an inclusionary space where voices from all demographics can be heard.” The Proclamation further referenced Thomas’ previous legal career as well as her creation of the CBS Diversity Institute and noted she has “consistently demonstrated that broad based social inclusion constitutes good business practice.”  In addition, Thomas was presented with a Certificate of Recognition from New York State Senator Leroy Comrie.
