Time Warner Cable CEO Invited to the White House-For the Third Time
The CAMM program Cone helped create is the impetus
Washington D.C. (July 27, 2011)- Time Warner Cable CEO Glenn Britt was invited to participate in a Business Roundtable with President Obama on July 18 to discuss how the business community can support an educated workforce in the U.S. This is TWC’s third invitation to the White House as a result of the Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) program Cone has created with them.
In 2009, CAMM launched in conjunction with the announcement of President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” effort, a call-to-action from the Administration for cross-sector partnerships to address the STEM crisis. During the time of the launch President Obama held an event at the White House to announce the initiative and lauded TWC in his remarks.
Two years later, Connect a Million Minds program continues to catch the attention of the White House. CEO Britt joined U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council Melody Barnes, America’s Promise Alliance Chair Alma Powell and Founding Chair General Colin Powell for this education roundtable with business leaders.
“We feel honored at Cone to be part of the impact Time Warner Cable has made through the Connect a Million Minds campaign. Recognition from the White House and U.S officials adds substantial weight to the program in an effort to create educational opportunities in conjunction with President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” call to action,” said Jens Bang, CEO of Cone.
