The WNET Group produces broadcast and online media for local, national, and international audiences. WNET creates award-winning content in the areas of arts and culture, news and public affairs, science and natural history, documentaries, and children’s programming. As the parent company of THIRTEEN, WLIW21, and WLIW-FM, and operator of NJ PBS, The WNET Group brings quality arts, education, and public affairs programming to over 5 million viewers each week.
The WNET Group’s ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, resulted in their recently launched supplier diversity program. This DEI program will better align WNET’s supply base with the communities we serve. The program is led by Procurement Director, Beth Calvo in partnership with Chief Diversity Equity and Inclusion Officer, Eugenia Harvey.
Beth Calvo joined WNET in 2016 as Procurement Director. Since then, she has implemented an updated procurement policy and worked to streamline procurement processes. Prior to joining WNET, Beth worked in a variety of Procurement roles in the pharmaceutical industry.
Eugenia Harvey joined WNET in 2018 as Executive Producer of two multi-platform projects, Chasing the Dream and Peril and Promise. Chasing the Dream was nominated for two New York Emmys in 2019 (Getting Off the Streets) and two in 2020 (A Dream Deferred). A veteran producer, showrunner, and executive with a wide range of experience in both commercial and public media, Eugenia was called on to serve as WNET’s chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer in the summer of 2020.
The WNET Group is excited to join The Council and have access to best practices and support in building out our program. We look forward to networking with other member organizations.
