For entrepreneurs, content producers and innovative businesses, understanding how to navigate those fault lines will be a critical component of making money in an increasingly diverse and global economy. Using the innovative diversity training workshop model employed by the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education, Dori Maynard and Joshunda Sanders provide tips to entrepreneurs, journalists, web content producers, consultants and marketers for profitably navigating racial, economic and gender diversity in unique, lucrative and comfortable ways. Audience will receive real time tips for diversifying content and expanding their business approaches to gaining new customers.
