Linda Dianne, Video/Social Media Strategist from Diversify Social Media and Milly Tamarez, a Freelance Social Media Manager and Comedian, join the Social Pros Podcast to talk about the importance of diversity on social media.

Be More Inclusive on Social Media“Social media has been a reckoning for people of colour”

Inclusivity on social media is so important. Brands continue to make promises to be more inclusive, which is great. However, we need to make a real effort to change and grow to ensure we’re inclusive in not just what we say, but in what we do.
Two special guests join us in this powerful Social Pros episode featuring Linda Dianne, Video/Social Media Strategist from Diversify Social Media, and Milly Tamarez, a Freelance Social Media Manager and Comedian. The fight for true diversity, inclusivity, and acceptance for all is still ongoing. The jury is still out on lasting change from brands, and as Milly states in this episode, “something has shifted, and things have changed. But it is a process that we have to continue working on and optimizing.”
Many deeply important topics around diversity in the social media industry are discussed in this episode, so tune in with an open mind and get ready to motivate real change in your everyday life.
