The Institutional Diversity Blog is always looking for contributors with expertise in addressing today’s societal challenges and building traditions of diversity, equity, and inclusion within organizations, along with the implementation of best practices and policies. We are especially interested in contributions that fit into at least one of our six focus areas:
- Societal Diversity
- Diversity: What is it?
- Institutional Diversity or Organizational Diversity
- Multicultural Education
Submitting Articles to The Institutional Diversity Blog
A good Institutional Diversity Blog post offers: 1) background and context to ongoing local, national and/or global diversity-related issues, 2) a challenge to the mainstream media perspective of diversity, or 3) an important story with equity-relevant perspective that hasn’t been told elsewhere. We are open to any subject matter that follows these guidelines and is characterized by quality writing.
Before you submit to The Institutional Diversity Blog, please make sure you are familiar with our approach. Articles for The Institutional Diversity Blog should be written in language such that a broad audience can comprehend. Assume that you’re talking to knowledgeable readers, but don’t be didactic. Avoid excessive identifiers for well-known figures or familiar debates. We encourage writers to grapple with big ideas, but they must be conveyed with wit and style, avoiding clichés, jargon, artspeak, legalese, journalese, and academese.
