There are several magazines committed to providing practitioners with best practice solutions for managing diversity. In fact, they mirror the webinars and conferences in which in-house professionals (e.g., Chief Diversity Officers) and consultants offer their insights from years of experience. How individuals in the audience actually put what is shared into practice is not easy in many cases.
The problem, in part, is due to in-house professionals protecting their property rights and consultants just giving you enough to spark your interest in contracting with them. But, the bigger problem is that most people think they really are giving you things you can apply right now. However, what contributed to their success remains “between their ears” and you are left both very impressed and dumb founded at the same time.
In any case, there are ways for those who are reluctant to share their “secrets” to add practical value to their audience while maintaining a competitive edge. With a bit of tweaking even the most thoughtful, but less practical contribution can offer the reader information that can be applied. After all, the goal is the same for each of us in this work—we want to make things better for the people who work in organizations.
Diversity Officer Magazine (aka Strategic Diversity & Inclusion Magazine) is a knowledge-sharing and knowledge base solution that brings together professionals for in-depth discussions about high impact diversity and inclusion expertise.
Chief diversity officers and other diversity professionals are the primary audience. We believe that there are so many “best practices” out there, but little research exists that tells us which practices really deserve the label. Practitioners can do more effective work that positively affects the lives of people in organizations with research driven and well-tested solutions.
The magazine seeks high quality articles for publication. The content categories include best practice application, applied research, diversity solutions, cultural competence, strategy, crossing borders, managing diversity, and leadership. If you are uncertain or wish to submit an article that does not fit into these categories, please contact for more information.
How to Submit an Article
Diversity Officer Magazine requires authoritative and how-to feature stories that range between 600 and 1800 words in length. Articles that provide strategies and methods in sufficient detail so that readers can apply them in their work are given priority. Consultants need not worry about giving away their ideas. Our experience indicates that decision makers want to have a clear idea about how a consultant works before deciding who to contract. In addition, they recognize that you are the expert in what you deliver. They are looking for the best. Best practice articles are limited to 1000 words, feature articles are limited to 2000 words, and content area articles are limited to 600 words.
