DiversityComm, Inc., publisher of Black EOE Journal, Hispanic Network Magazine, Multicultural Professional Woman's Magazine and U.S. Veterans Magazine, is proud to be serving as a key sponsor for this year's USA Science and Engineering Festival.
DiversityComm's founder and publisher Mona Lisa Faris, who recently announced the launching of the company's newest magazine, Diversity in STEAM Magazine, says: "We share the Festival's mission of reinvigorating students' interest in science, technology, engineering and math, in addition to technology in the arts, and we are excited to be a part of this year's Festival!"
The presence of DiversityComm at the Festival Expo this month will emphasize the key role the company and Diversity in STEAM Magazine will play in bringing educational, employment, business, and mentorship opportunities to encourage more women and minorities to pursue the lucrative path of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) into the future. "In our pages, you'll read fascinating stories of women and minorities who are changing the world," says Mona.
The premiere issue of the biannual Diversity in STEAM Magazine is set to hit newsstands and digital platforms December 15, 2014, featuring Bill Nye, "The Science Guy," and Neil DeGrasse Tyson on the cover, she adds.
"We see that combining science and technology with the creative arts is the direction that many entrepreneurs are heading today,"Mona explains. "Diversity in STEAM Magazine brings STEM programs and educational, business and employment opportunities to all minorities and diverse cultures, starting with K–12."
In recent decades, the job demand and salary opportunities in such fields as medical and pharmaceutical pursuits, engineering, research and development, information technology and other science and technology-related fields have skyrocketed. Still, says Mona, minorities and women remain grossly underrepresented in STEM fields, and it is for this reason that Diversity in STEAM was created.
"Preparing students for STEAM opportunities starts with making our K–12 students STEAM literate," says Faris. "A STEAM-literate student is not only an innovator and a critical thinker, but he or she is also able to make meaningful connections between school, community, work, business and global issues."
