5 Journalists To Follow On Twitter: DEI Edition

Many of us are aware of the inequalities within society and the workplace. If you’re not familiar then consider this stat from IWPR (Institute for Women’s Policy Research), “On average, Black women in the U.S. are paid 38% less than white men and 21% less than white women.” Aside from equal pay, equal representation is also a major issue and many corporations, big and small, have begun pushing to hire a more diverse workforce.
