Each year, nearly 200 Emma Bowen students gather in New York City at the Emma Bowen Foundation Annual Summer Conference to network, learn, and take their first steps toward a career in the media and technology industries. The Annual Summer Conference features talks by charismatic leaders in the industry and conversations with EBF Alumni, as well as a few flagship events, including the Foundation’s Annual Power Networking event and the Foundation’s Annual Career Fair with some of the industry’s leading employers.
The Emma Bowen Fellows Program provides multi-year internships to students of color at media companies across the country. Each student works as a paid summer intern for each summer following their selection as an Emma Bowen Foundation Fellow through their college graduation, gaining significant on-the-job training in their field and making connections with colleagues and mentors that last a lifetime. Our fellows graduate with invaluable work experience and a head-start in whichever career they choose.
We work to educate and place our students in all areas of the industry, and focus on three programming tracks - the Business of Media (Sales, Public Relations, Marketing, Human Resources, etc.), Content of Media (News Production, Broadcast Journalism, and Print Journalism), and Innovation of Media (Engineering, Software Development, Digital Marketing, Coding, etc.).
