A successful city magazine should fairly reflect the readership it serves. As our staff is not large, the DAC will help advise the editors on matters of diversity and help the magazine “widen its net” when it comes to covering the wide range of communities that make up our city.
The five-member Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) is a volunteer group that will meet every second month with the editor and publisher of Edify.
For our inaugural Council, two members of the community are appointed by the publisher and editor; these two selected three members from the applications received. The editor and publisher were not be part of this selection process, and won’t be involved in the selection of Council members in the future.
