Stories for Representation and Diversity
At Issuu, we believe that storytelling has the power to create awareness, encourage a dialogue and contribute to driving change in our world. In light of the recent Black Lives Matter protests and movement, the Issuu CEO Joe Hykin recently made a statement on behalf of himself and our company. We are committed to being a part of a sustained movement that creates the new normal, built on a foundation of seeing and appreciating each other’s value.
Issuu Stacks to Explore
Issuu is proud to be a platform that enables people from all different perspectives, backgrounds and groups to tell their stories and demonstrate their humanity. We are learning from and listening to organizations, publications, social media and more fighting for racial equality and social justice. We encourage readers to explore the storytelling by black voices to represent their culture, history, arts and everyday experience. Explore the Issuu Stack: Representation Matters for a curated selection of Issuu publications.We have been inspired to see companies and organizations across the globe reviewing their own culture and policies for diversity and inclusion. We are even more impressed by some of our publishers who are already making strides in the area by publishing their own Diversity & Inclusion reports, outlining steps to improve and asking their employees and the public to hold them accountable by making the documents public. Consider how you can incorporate some of the learnings of companies already doing important diversity and inclusion work. Explore the Issuu Stack: Diversity & Inclusion to learn more.
