|Includes: Professional Diversity Network, Inc. (IPDN)

Professional Diversity Network will release its Diversity Jobs Report this Thursday, February 6. The report contains statistical data about the nation's employment situation by gender and race, as well as information relevant to the employment conditions for women, veterans, and disabled persons.

The Diversity Jobs Report will also include detailed reporting on the employment condition of the previous month broken down by four categories-worker groups, geography, industry, and education-and subcategories within those.

The worker category looks at employment of veterans, disabled persons, women, Hispanics, African Americans, Asians, and people in the LGBT community. The geography category covers nine geographical regions, the industry category looks at 14 different segments, and the education category looks at those with and without college degrees.

Professional Diversity Network is also releasing its first Diversity Jobs Index (DJI) as part of the report, which is an indicator of the employment condition for diverse Americans including Hispanic, African American, and Asian American professionals. The DJI is calculated using numerous data points from Fortune 1,000 companies that currently use Professional Diversity Network's web-based diversity recruitment platforms. The DJI uses this proprietary client data to assess demand for diverse talent and compare how it relates to the nation's overall employment situation.

"The Diversity Jobs Report will complement the information provided in the Department of Labor's Employment Situation report and will provide important economic data points for companies interested in diversity recruitment," said Kevin M. Williams, chief marketing officer of Professional Diversity Network. "Our analysts are taking a deep dive into data relative to diversity employment from numerous government and public resources and combining it with proprietary information from clients who utilize our diversity recruitment platform."

"Professional Diversity Network is dedicated to improving the employment condition of all Americans and providing economic opportunity that helps decrease the nation's wealth gap," Williams added. "We are investing in the creation of the DJI to better inform and educate employers. By providing a national snapshot against which to analyze their internal diversity workforce levels, the DJI can help companies effectively achieve their diversity recruitment goals."
