In the words of acclaimed journalist Robert C. Maynard, the fault lines of race, class, gender, generation and geography are the most enduring forces shaping lives, experiences and social tension. 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.
