How to Contribute to Diversity Abroad
Submit an Article!
Have you participated in a global experience? Did a global experience help you advance your career readiness? If so, we want to hear from you! Pay your experience forward and share your personal experiences and perspective by contributing an article to DiversityAbroad.com.
Contributors can write about any of the stages of the global education process, from exploration to transitioning to a career and articles can take the form of personal narratives or tips and resources.
We are looking for professionals with an area of expertise in career readiness, international education, and diversity, equity and inclusion as well as U.S. students who have had a global experience or international students who have interned or studied on exchange or a full-degree in the United States.
Articles should be written to appeal to the traditionally college-aged student population (18-24) and be presented in a friendly, approachable, student-focused style. Check out some examples of articles written for the Diversity Abroad Community below!
- 7 Strategies For Embracing Cultural Immersion
- First Abroad Stories: Shalom Hernandez and Managing a Physical Disability Abroad
- Building Relationships In Your Host Community
Specific guidelines for article submission can be found here. Before submitting make sure your article meets all criteria. Please do not submit pitches, abstracts, outlines, press releases, or interview offers.
