“Our personal development and evolution as one people is, in my opinion, our biggest priority as a human race. Through a better understanding and exploration of ourselves, we unlock our latent potential and are happier and more effective players in the world we occupy. As with all industries, diverse representation is critical to engaging with the masses. We need visible examples of individuals with whom we share rhetoric, backgrounds and experiences in order to engage.” 

This ever-expanding initiative includes events and scholarships for writers of color who want to learn more about the publishing process and the best steps to take to get published in our field.

-Jessica Huie, author of Purpose

“As a British-born Indian, I have broken the stereotype that is often attached to my culture by sharing my story. By being vulnerable, brave and bold enough to speak about my life and struggles as a young Indian man, whilst avoiding societal norms, I am managing to inspire thousands of people worldwide. We need to hear from other voices and backgrounds too, as everyone has a story to tell which will inspire others and set them on the path to self-healing.”

We are hopeful that Diverse Wisdom will help to make our industry more reflective of the society we live in. We are waiting to hear your story.

“As a meditation guide, mentor, and wellness justice advocate, I've held space for a large and diverse online community for over a decade. And I've witnessed firsthand how many dynamic, inspiring, and valuable stories there are to be told but haven't gotten the reach they deserve because of obstacles faced by marginalized communities.

Hay House's Diverse Wisdom Initiative is by far one of the most rewarding things I've been a part of professionally. Helping amplify voices that too often get muffled by systemic barriers is beyond exciting. I can't wait to meet the next round of participants!”

“My experience of being a bi-racial teen mom on welfare who worked her way up in the non-profit sector while building my own business gives me a unique perspective on using our businesses for social good. Supporting the expansion of Hay House’s Diverse Wisdom Initiative is one of the highlights of my work over the last year. “

Inspired by the work of our author, the entrepreneur and influencer Jessica Huie, and excited by other diversity initiatives in the publishing industry, Hay House has created Diverse Wisdom to attract and promote more writers of color in the personal development, holistic health and spirituality space.

Louise Hay and Hay House CEO Reid Tracy have a long-standing commitment to publishing diverse voices, and we see this program as an opportunity to strengthen that legacy and expand our community.
