DiversityWorking ~ About
Employers realizing the importance of building diversity in the workplace rely on diversity job boards to help in their search of high caliber diversity talents. Countless job boards exist in the internet, many of which are general job boards, an example of which is Monster.com, a worldwide employment website. Others are niche boards, like DiversityWorking.com that focus specifically on diversity recruitment.
Niche boards focus on any number of criteria including specific market segments, professions, geographic area or other employment issues, such as diversity. While niche boards often have fewer jobs available than the larger generalist job boards, they are easier to navigate and ensure that both the employer and the candidate are on the same page. - See more at: http://www.hrmagazine.co.uk/hro/opinion/1018358/why-diversity-job-boards-role-play#sthash.E14LPwwV.dpuf
However, while there are diversity job boards that cater to the general diversity marketplace, some are more specialized diversity niche job boards catering to specific job fields or groups, such as minority groups, further classified into Blacks, Hispanic/Latin Americans, disabled people, military veterans and so on.
Here is a look at some of the popular diversity job boards online:

Steven Garcia of DiversityWorking.com, in stressing the need to hire diversity professionals says, "Employers today are looking to recruit from a quality diversity talent pool. They are advertising more on diversity job boards like DiversityWorking.com because they can't find diversity talent on other general job boards.
