DiversityComm Returns as Festival Media Partner
Based in Irvine, California, DiversityComm, Inc., is the proud publisher of six national diversity-focused magazines that place an emphasis on STEM opportunities: Black EOE Journal, HISPANIC Network Magazine, Professional WOMAN’s Magazine, U.S. Veterans Magazine, DIVERSEability Magazine and Diversity in STEAM Magazine. This premier publisher returns to the 5th biennial USA Science & Engineering Festival as a media partner, assisting the event in its mission to inform and engage wide and diverse populations in the rewarding frontiers of STEM. The 5th USA Science & Engineering Festival will be held in Washington, D.C., April 7-8, 2018.
As a Festival media partner, DiversityComm will report on the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo and educational programs such as the X-STEM Symposium, taking place April 28, 2017 and the popular Nifty Fifty Program and share with its readers the valuable activities and opportunities available through these events. The company will also call attention to the growing impact of STEAM and the many reasons more women, minorities and other underrepresented groups are now taking advantage of these expanding and rewarding fields.
“Education is the key to advancing our youth in STEM. By partnering with USA Science & Engineering Festival as their media sponsor, together we can provide more opportunities for and influence the minds of our future STEM leaders. Our goal, like USASEF, is to spark the interest of our nation's youth in STEM by presenting the most compelling, exciting and educational science festival in the United States. We are looking forward to encouraging those that may not have great interest in STEM and inspiring change at this 2017 event.”
—DiversityComm President and Publisher Mona Lisa Faris
“STEAM-related jobs are growing at nearly twice the pace of all other fields combined,” says Mona Lisa Faris. “In 2017, more than 1 million jobs will become available. In the 21st century, we need diverse, creative, global thinkers, and the arts and design help inspire this creativity as a key to innovation. STEAM professionals are essential to U.S. science and technological leadership and innovation and thus, are vital to U.S. economic strength, national defense and competitiveness.” Faris adds that STEAM jobs make up more than 1 out of every 10 jobs in the United States. “That makes the lack of STEM representation among women, minorities and underrepresented youths even more pressing.”Through her company’s participation as a media partner for the Festival, Faris says she would like visitors to get to know DiversityComm, Inc., as a valuable resource for employment, education and business opportunities.
“Our goal is to provide opportunities for women, minorities and underrepresented youth in the STEAM community. We are committed to inspiring our youth to investigate STEAM fields now for a brighter future,” she adds.
