Adweek magazine has hired Mary Emily O’Hara as a diversity and inclusion reporter.
She will start in February.
On Twitter, O’Hara wrote, “What excites me about this role is the opportunity to focus on something that impacts us all — advertising and media — while continuing to report through the lens of underrepresented communities.”
O’Hara was previously an editor and reporter at Grindr’s LGBTQ news site INTO, which was shut down by the company in early 2019. She has also worked at NBC News, The Daily Dot, Vice Media and DNAInfo.
While at The Daily Dot, her 2016 coverage of emerging technology developments in transgender health care resulted in a Best Health Coverage award from the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association.
