DPSN stands for “Diversity Promotion through Social Networking”. It began life as the Diversityworks Peer Spport Network in 2009 and, like all things, it has changed shape over time.

DPSN aims to build and bring together a diverse community of people on the margins of society, who may not normally network with each other, to engage in conversation about diversity, creativity and social change. In doing so, we hope to both achieve changes in attitudes around diversity, acceptance and inclusion and foster a leadership approach to social change.

DPSN maintains a blog that features commentary and short video interviews with people about diversity, creativity and social change, sourced from the events and conferences that we attend. We also support and encourage occasional get-togethers of people which foster exploratory conversations in a social setting.
