Diversity Advisory Council Mission Statement

We are professionals in a creative industry that serves a creative audience. Creativity, at the core of what we do and the audience we service, flourishes best in an environment where diversity of thought and inclusion of all are priorities. For everyone to perform at their best, we need to recognize and address demographic, opportunity and social issues that can impede the creative process and create an environment where those priorities are apparent. The Diversity Advisory Council (DAC) at Vogue Knitting magazine has as its mission to ensure that all—regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexuality, religion, age, ability or access needs—feel welcome, supported and recognized by our publications and at our events. We recognize that this is not a quick fix, but rather a journey to lasting change.
