The CBS Diversity Institute conducted workshops at The Atlanta University Center (AUC), the largest contiguous consortium of African Americans in higher education composed of Clark Atlanta University (CAU), Spelman College and Morehouse College.
CBS Casting Vice President Fern Orenstein presented casting workshops and CBS Diversity Manager Barbara Matos also participated providing program information about the range of initiatives and responding to inquiries. Each workshop is designed to help actors land roles, as Orenstein lends her extensive knowledge of the casting process, while giving professional assessment and one-on-one critiques. The two workshops were held at the CAU Campus in September and hosted by CAU Professor Gary Yates, Chair of the Speech Communication and Theatre Arts Division.
SVP & Chief Diversity Officer Josie Thomas added, “We are thrilled to expand our CBS Diversity Institute by partnering with the AUC, as we look forward to new opportunities for diverse talent.”
