Cohen to Receive MMTC Diversity AwardCited for Visionary Leadership in Promoting Diversity, Access 1/07/2013 6:52 AM Eastern
Cohen, who heads up policy for Comcast, is being cited for "visionary leadership in promoting minority entrepreneurship; universal broadband access, adoption and informed use; diversity; and success in America's most influential and important industries."
Comcast helped shepherd the NBCU deal through the FCC and Justice. That deal included a number of commitments to promote diverse businesses and programming. Comcast has also been in the vanguard of low-cost broadband adoption through its Internet Essentials program, which was praised by the FCC and became a model for a larger, industry-wide effort to subsidize broadband in low income homes with school-aged children.
