In April, as part of the CBS Corporation Diversity and Inclusion Outreach efforts, CBS News National Correspondent, Vladimir Duthiers along with CBS VP of Branded Entertainment & Media Innovation, Antoinette Clarke and Executive Vice President CBS Network Sales, Chris Simon traveled to New Rochelle, NY for a ‘College to Career’ seminar with students from Iona College. The trip and Student Presentation was facilitated by Barbara Matos, Vice President Diversity & Inclusion along with Dr. Darrell Wheeler, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Iona College and Marty Daly, Executive in Residence at Iona College and retired SVP and Director of News and Late Night Sales, CBS TV Network.
Iona students heard Vlad, Antoinette, Chris and Barbara share the career paths that led them to the senior positions they currently occupy. The seminar showcased to inner city and suburban students how they can emulate the career success of the CBS visitors by networking and working hard on each job they encounter after graduation.
“The visiting CBS Team’s ‘Amazing Career Stories’ provided a catalyst for the Iona Students’ rapid engagement during and after their session. Many of the Iona students have already followed up with Vlad, Antoinette, Chris and Barbara for further advice and counsel” said Dr. Darrell Wheeler. Marty Daly said the Iona Campus is still buzzing with excitement over the CBS Team’s visit!
