For many years, HBO executive Kary Antholis ’84 regularly extended a hand to Bowdoin students, inviting them to intern at his company where he oversees the Miniseries and Cinemax programs. About four years ago, Antholis approached Dighton Spooner, senior associate director in Bowdoin’s Career Planning office, to talk with him about how to encourage a wider pool of applicants. Four years ago, they set up the HBO Diversity Internship.
“The young Bowdoin men and women who have worked for us as summer interns have, without exception, brought enthusiasm, intelligence, and unique and diverse perspectives to the HBO family,” Antholis said. “We are grateful to the college for sharing these stars of the future with us.” Read about the program’s four interns.
