“We share stories of individuals who have blazed trails in this space, organizations making waves, and programs witnessing success, to shine the light on those making great strides,” says Diversity Professional CEO and President Melissa Simmons. “But we also share the challenges, big ifs, and failures that became the steppingstones for future achievements in our community, one built on celebrating those doing the work, recognizing those trying and acknowledging those whose foundations we build upon.”
Additional touchpoints Diversity Professional now offers includes new services such as Ask the Expert, First Impressions, Shop the Brand, the new DP Worldwide community, and new DP app, along with plans for improved programming and broader global coverage. The next edition of the magazine will release in the fall and focus on leadership, diversity recruitment and workforce diversity, among other industry trends and topics worldwide.
“Yes, our coverage has expanded to a global audience in the last few editions, and we hope that sharing the work done on the regional and international arena helps us all learn from each other, tackle issues, device solutions, address those hard conversations and create frameworks for success in every avenue that we choose to operate and lead,” shares Diversity Professional Managing Editor Ruksana Hussain. “From business and career to lifestyle, it is our intention to provide well-rounded content covering a diverse range of topics celebrating the progress thus far and exploring the avenues for improvement as we all continue to immerse ourselves in the important work of promoting and practicing DEI in every opportunity we can.”
