Courteney Monroe, CEO of National Geographic Global Networks, was honored with the Broadcast, Cable & Film Award by the UJA-Federation of New York for her professional and philanthropic achievements. The Broadcast, Cable & Film Award Celebration, hosted in New York, also celebrated the philanthropic organization’s 100 years of serving the needs of New Yorkers and Jews around the world through collective action and building innovative initiatives.
