About US

Why We Exist
PROUD is an acronym, which stands for People Relying On Unconditional Diversity. It is a national magazine that celebrates the careers and lifestyles of professionals of color.  It is for everyone.  We exist to unite and expose all people to the cultures that make up our world.  From the front-runner to the up-and-comer, PROUD seeks to showcase uncommon achievers in a vast array of fields and occupations.  It is the conduit through which voices are heard, contributions and successes applauded, and issues explored in a solutions-oriented manner.

PROUD is a celebration of cultures in print, further existing to educate, motivate, inspire, uplift and build on existing desires to discover greater potential, find purpose and pursue destiny.
