Free Online Resources Available to Improve Education, Communication & Training
CHATTANOOGA, TN — The American Diversity Report, an award-winning digital multimedia platform, today announced a new outreach campaign to raise public awareness and enhance understanding of critically important issues of diversity, inclusion, cross cultural competence, and counteracting hate.
Those interested in supporting the online initiative – including corporate America, academia, philanthropists, advocacy groups and individuals – can visit Boost American Diversity Report GoFundMe Campaign to consider a small donation of $10, $25 or more. The page also includes a video message from Editor-in-Chief Deborah Levine, who founded the American Diversity Report (ADR) 15 years ago and has single-handedly managed it despite chronic illness.
“My life’s work is helping people and organizations enhance diversity and inclusion, foster positive race relations, and improve cross cultural competency – all of which are fluid variables during these challenging times,” noted Levine, author of the recent book, When Hate Groups March Down Main Street: Engaging A Community Response. A book excerpt is available here.
She added: “Vital support from the public will help optimize the ADR’s capacity, increase accessibility, and modernize the design for a broader reach and readership. Everyone can learn and benefit from the free educational resources available through the ADR. This is especially important in our increasingly multiracial, multiethnic and multicultural society.”
Levine has been a nationally-recognized diversity futurist and change agent for 30 years. She was recently named by Forbes magazine as a top Diversity and Inclusion Trailblazer. She is also an award-winning author of 15 books, as well as an opinion columnist for The Chattanooga Times Free Press newspaper.
Among her many achievements, Levine received the Champion of Diversity Award from DiversityBusiness.com, the Excellence Award from the Tennessee Economic Council on Women, and the Chattanooga Award for Management Consulting. Her published articles span decades in journals and magazines including, The American Journal of Community Psychology, Journal of Public Management & Social Policy, The Bermuda Magazine, and The Harvard Divinity School Bulletin. A former blogger for The Huffington Post, Levine has been featured on C-SPAN Book TV and other media venues.
