Diversity Doula Year in Review


By Beth Hardy

2017 brought the UDA our very first blog, and it has been an honor to be part of this inaugural team of bloggers. I have had the privilege of being 2017’s “Diversity Doula.” In this role, I’ve had the chance to bring you monthly blog topics that highlight marginalized communities and diverse voices. Finding a wide variety of monthly bloggers and topics has been fun and informative, and I appreciate this opportunity. I’m excited to see what blog posts next year’s Diversity Doula will publish!

Below are links to the 10 Diversity Doula blog posts that have been published in 2017. If you haven’t read them yet, now is a great time to check them out!


Thanks again to the UDA board for trusting me to be your first-ever Diversity Doula blogger. I’m excited to see what blog posts next year’s Diversity Doula will publish!
