Diversity in Social Media

'The Business of Diversity - how PR performance can be improved by embracing diversity'. is to be debated by the CIPR on 18 October, the conference will see leading speakers address the issues posed by Britain's increasingly diverse society. At the heart of the conference is the proposition that it is in the best interests of businesses to diversify their workforce.The report will review the diversity of the PR profession today in terms of ethnicity, gender, disability, age and sexuality.

One notes that diversity has not being extended to people without the ability, education or technical skills to be a blogger of Colin Farrington's stature. I have a young
dyspraxic friend who is a wizzard Instant Messaging. Perhaps he can attend and explain the problems of using and being accepted as a blogger and with other social media.
