NAMIC Employment Research

NAMIC Research (Our History)

Launched in 1999, the NAMIC employment survey, A Look Toward Advancement: Multi-ethnic Employment in the Communications Industry, provided a baseline of statistics and perceptions about the state of multi-ethnic diversity in the cable telecommunications industry. This first research of its kind in the industry led to the creation in 2000 of NAMIC’s Executive Leadership Development Program (ELDP) for high-potential executives of color. A further outgrowth in 2005 was the formation of the NAMIC Leadership Seminars for coordinators, managers, and new directors–from across the multi-cultural, multi-ethnic spectrum–interested in becoming culturally competent leaders and, as important, committed to crafting personal blueprints for career success. Re-branded in 2011 as the NAMIC AIM (Advancement Investment Measurement), the employment survey continues to provide rich data utilized by industry companies to support goals for building and sustaining a robust pipeline of diverse talent.
